Princeton is located between New York City and Philadelphia and is easy to reach by public transportation or by car. The closest and most conveniently accessed international airport is Newark Liberty International.

The University is easily accessible by train, which runs along the Northeast Corridor line and also stops at Newark airport. Both Amtrak and NJ TRANSIT trains stop at Princeton Junction. Travelers can then transfer to a single-car train operated by NJ TRANSIT, known locally as the "Dinky," for the five-minute ride to Princeton Station. The station is located on Alexander Street at the southern end of campus.
