Events

Are you attending a major event at Princeton? Are you planning to hold an event on campus? Check the appropriate options below to find out more information about event parking, or submit an Event Parking Request to notify TPS of any parking or transportation needs associated with your event.

Primary parking for Princeton athletic events is usually available in Lot 21 (adjacent to Jadwin Gym and Princeton Stadium) or Lot 20 (7-10 minute walk to west campus athletic fields). Additional parking options will vary depending on the sporting event and the total number of attendees. For larger crowds, typically during football and basketball games, Transportation and Parking Services will deploy additional signage and parking staff to direct attendees to the proper parking areas.

Family and friends attending commencement activities beginning on Sunday (June 3) with Baccalaureate and Monday (June 4) for Class Day and departmental receptions should park in Visitor Lots 23, 20 and 21. On Tuesday (June 5) for Commencement, visitors should park in Lots 23, 20, or the West Garage. Shuttle service will be provided from Visitor Lots 23 and 20 and from the West Garage prior to the start of Commencement ceremonies.

Parking on Princeton’s campus is extremely limited and cannot accommodate every Reunion visitor. Please make arrangements to ride the complimentary shuttles from designated Reunions hotels or use public transportation to access campus.

If you must drive, please plan to carpool if at all possible. On Thursday and Friday of reunions, parking from 7am-5pm is available in Visitor Lots 23, 20, and 21. After 5pm on Thursday, after 5pm Friday and throughout the weekend, visitors can park in any numbered, unrestricted lot on campus, including the West Garage and the North Garage.
