Princeton is an academic, research, business, and residential community located midway between New York and Philadelphia. Residents and students have access to libraries, museums, churches, theaters, concerts, athletic events and public lectures in the immediate vicinity.


We welcome visitors to park in one of the 10 identified visitor spaces near the Center of Theological Inquiry in the Library Lot without a special permit.

If those spaces are occupied, you may park along Mercer Street, Library Place, Stockton Street, or in the municipal lot next-door (metered parking).

The Library Lot is monitored. Vehicles parked in non-visitor spaces within the Library Lot without valid, current Princeton Seminary parking permits (or temporary permits issued for specific events) are subject to ticketing.

For general parking information, see the “Visitor Parking” section of the Parking Questions page.
