    Complimentary event parking is available at the University’s Stadium Drive Garage (Princeton Stadium Garage Map.) Campus visitors should register in advance for a virtual parking permit. The process will take less than a minute. Faculty, staff, and others that have a Princeton University parking permit do not need to register.

    Shuttle Service

    Once you have parked, please proceed to the covered transit waiting area directly adjacent to the first-floor pedestrian exit. A heated indoor waiting room is also available at this location. From there, you may board the dedicated event shuttle bus, which will be making continuous loops between the Stadium Drive Garage and Streicker Bridge at Scholar Way between 11 am – 7 pm. Please check for the event sign on the window as a few bus routes stop at this location. The driver will also be able to assist you if you have questions.

    To return to your vehicle, you may board the bus at the same location where you were dropped off. The shuttle bus is ADA compliant, offering kneeling and ramp features as well as wheelchair seating.

    If walking, we will have directional signs that will guide you from Stadium Garage to Frick Laboratory. It is about an 8-minute walk.
