Princeton University Campus is a beautiful place to walk around and explore. The buildings are beautiful to look at and the grounds are always changing with the seasons. Highly recommend.

An attractive campus that is a mix of faux-Oxford, a few very old buildings, and newer buildings. If you have some kind of guidance to give you background and history about what's what, this is a nice place to spend a few hours.

I live 10 miles from this place. It's a good place to walk on weekends. We go at least once a month. We always have found some sort of activities happening on campus. Love the place.

I wish Trip Advisor could let you choose more than one visit date. We have been on this campus many times and through all seasons it is just beautiful. For any Harry Potter fans out there it is reminiscent of Hogwarts without the robes, brooms, wands, and dragons!!!!! You could picture them here however.

There's nothing one can add to praise Princeton University that is not said or known. I would only sugest the guided - by a student -or self guided tour, checking the schedulle in the website. The self guided tour takes you inside different schools/buildings, where you can see the quality of its labs, libraries, Museum and other facilities. The guided... More

Princeton University leave me a very good impression. It's the most beautiful universities in USA. If you are planning to visit Pheladelphia and have enough time, Princeton University is a must see. Never miss the old house of Albert Einstein. Its address is 112 Mercer St.

Park your car in one of the local lots, put on your walking shoes, and pick a lovely warm afternoon. This is a big sprawling campus. If you must, there are several books, and even a few walking guides however, my style is to just walk. Even if you walked in circles, you would see stuff. There are so many... More

Visiting Princeton University was the happiest moment of my life because I value education and good schools. The campus was so huge and the architectural designs of the buildings were simply amazing. Colleges are separated, beautiful landscapes and plenty of trees. It is a nice place to study and belong. So, if you happened to be in New Jersey, don't... More

This campus is fabulous. As you would expect from a world class institution. Wonderful architecture, a terrific Art museum, beautifully landscaped grounds. The town is a gem in the middle of New Jersey too. If you have a free day make Princeton and the University a stop in your schedule. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
