The campus can be reached by shuttles and trains from four international airports. The closest and most conveniently accessed international airport is Newark Liberty International.
- Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR)
- Philadelphia International Airport (PHL)
- John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK)
- LaGuardia International Airport (LGA)
Getting From the Newark Airport to Princeton
First, take the Northeast Corridor Line of New Jersey Transit Train from Newark Airport (EWR) to Princeton Junction Station. This costs $17.25 for about an hour’s ride (see train schedule; or a cheat sheet of trains that run from Newark International Airport Station to Princeton Junction on late afternoons of Monday to Friday).
At Princeton Junction Station, you may either hire a taxi to the Princeton area (fare estimate: $20-$25 one way) or change trains and take the “Dinky” train to Princeton Station, which is at Alexander Street.
A more verbose guide can be found here. If you are taking taxi/shuttle to the campus dorm, it helps to print out the first page and give the instruction to the driver.
Guests of Hyatt Regency Princeton please consult the hotel info page for directions.
