By train to Princeton University

From New York Penn Station, take the Northeast Corridor line to Princeton Junction. You then need to transfer to Princeton Shuttle (Dinky) that goes directly to Princeton University.

At New York Penn Station, buy a round trip ticket to Princeton (not Princeton Junction although you will get off train at that station). The ticket to Princeton will also cover the continuous trip to Princeton University. 

Adult One Way ticket is $16.50 (including Princeton Shuttle). Child/Senior is $7.50.

It takes about 90 minutes to get to Princeton University from New York.

It takes 10 minutes to walk from Princeton Shuttle Station (Dinky Station) to East Asian Library.

The East Asian Library is close to Washington Road and it takes about 7 minutes to walk from the train station to the library.

Driving to Princeton University

Here is Princeton University website: Driving Direction to Princeton.

Here is visitor parking information at Princeton.  We heard that visitor parking is free, but it is hard to find one. There are some public parking garages at other size of Route 27.  Most metered parking on Princeton streets is limited to one or two hours.

Any question, please feel free to email Judy at and Charlene at

We are looking forward to seeing you all there.
