I would like to go back and learn more about the on campus art I missed. The buildings are historic and awe inspiring. I wish we went into the library, class halls, food courts and dorms to see where students interact.

Princeton University's campus is located in the heart of Princeton, N.J. It's a very interesting mix of old and new buildings, and an excellent place to walk and just admire the buildings and the views.

This is one of the do-able Ivy-League Universities you can do in one day. The size is small compared to others. Most of what you want to do is in a relatively small area. Just go and see it for yourself!

A classic Ivy League campus; easy to walk with many interesting buildings, art pieces, art museum and people. Do some homework before you visit so you make the right choices / plans; also carry a map to keep track of where you are.

The town of Princeton is small but its University is of particular importance as a tourist goal. A large number of buildings, , colleges, dormitories, green spots, big library, and the cosy university chapel.

What is there to say? Woodward Wilson was the president of the university before he became PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. Tradition and Einstein’s home.

Historic background enhances the interest of grand buildings. the campus is great to walk through but parking can be far away.

Check the website - search tours and information sessions then click on "current schedule" Looks like they have 2 tours on remaining Sundays in August at 1 pm and 3:30 pm, but check the website to be sure.
