Parking, Transportation & Headquarter Sites

Parking, Transportation & Headquarter Sites

Parking

Parking is very limited this year due to construction. Specifically, there is no longer parking on Ivy Lane north of the stadium (ES and SEAS construction site) and parking in Lot 21 on the south end of the stadium is significantly reduced (Stadium Drive Garage construction site).

Attendees are strongly encouraged to use hotel shuttles, transit, or carpool when traveling to campus, and should expect traffic delays and/or to be redirected to overflow parking in lots south and west of campus, particularly if arriving on Friday afternoon or Saturday morning. There will be shuttle service available from most satellite parking areas.

Although we cannot predict what space may be available when you arrive for Reunions, parking professionals will be onsite to direct arriving vehicles to campus lots in this order:

  • West Garage and Lot 20 (with shuttle service)
  • Harrison Street (with shuttle service)
  • North Garage and adjacent lots (no shuttle service)
  • Overflow lots at Lakeside Apartments, Lawrence Apartments, or Grad College Lot 19 (all with shuttle service)

Alternatives to campus traffic and at-capacity lots include parking at the Princeton Junction train station in West Windsor and taking the Dinky to campus. Parking is available for $6 daily (including the option to park for multiple days overnight) with the Dinky running all day and well after midnight on Friday and Saturday. Roundtrip fare is $6. You can find more information about West Windsor Parking here, and look for the Dinky schedule here to plan your trip.

Additional parking in town includes:

  • Most meters in town, most free of charge after 8:00 pm
  • Public garages on Chambers, Hulfish & Spring Streets

ACCESSIBLE PARKING

There will be ADA parking available in the north end of Lot 20, adjacent to the Shuttle Info Center, with access to frequent shuttle and golf cart transportation to Forbes College and other Reunions sites.

CAMPUS ACCESS

There is no access to Elm Drive for any personal vehicles during Reunions.

Hotel Shuttles

Charter buses with 50-55 passenger capacity will service over 25 hotels in the area with 10 shuttle routes. Hotel charters will operate at one-hour frequencies and attendees will have access to track buses in real-time using a mobile app. Hotels will be serviced by different numbers of buses based on anticipated demand at each hotel.

When arriving on a hotel shuttle, guests will be dropped off at Baker Rink adjacent to the north end of West Garage. When departing campus, attendees may board the hotel shuttles at Lot 23 (also the Shuttle Info Center).

The following hotels will be serviced by regular shuttles from 12 p.m.-12 a.m. Thursday, 7 a.m.-2:30 a.m. Friday, and 7 a.m.-2:30 a.m. Saturday. The last departure from campus will be 2:30 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. Please note: Make sure that you are in Lot 23 no later than 2:15 a.m. for the final shuttle departure to your hotel.

Campus Shuttles

On campus, two circulator routes will provide connections from remote parking areas, Forbes College and the Old Guard, the Dinky Station, and the periphery of core campus throughout Reunions.

Reunions Rover

Rovers — student-driven golf carts that serve as a mini transit connection on the core of campus — will operate on 2-3 fixed routes throughout Reunions, Thursday through Saturday night. Rovers will provide frequent service to the Dinky Station, hotel shuttles, Forbes, and Reunions headquarter sites along Elm Drive and Chapel Drive. Rover carts will be clearly marked and will make continuous loops around campus. Please feel free to wave down a Rover driver if you need a ride.

Taxis & Ride-Hailing Services

To prevent congestion on Elm Drive and other campus roads, all taxis and ride-hailing providers (Uber, Lyft, taxis, etc.) are restricted from entering main campus. Anyone wishing to use a ride-hailing provider may be picked up or dropped off at NJ Transit’s Princeton Station or along the campus perimeter, preferably locations on this map.
