This university is so beautiful no matter what the weather. Visited in spring and the blossoms are stunning. The whole university has the Harry Potter feel about it. Rocky quad is so cool!

We visited this university since my daughter was accepted and came to the preview. We loved the campus! It's beautiful! The buildings are like old castles and the chapel is huge and marvelous. Lawns are perfect. Also everyone we met here from the staff and students were kind and helpful. We are so grateful that my daughter has this blessing.

We had a stroll around the campus with friends last weekend and as always it was amazing. The architecture is breathtaking, the vast campus, the cheery kids, the adoring parents were all fascinating. The university is in the heart of Princeton and is home to many restaurants, ice cream bars, coffee places, bookstores and fashion/art stores.

Needles to say that Princeton University is one of the beast colleges in the world. The Campus is old and beautiful. It is located right in the center pf Princeton. The Campus was very clean. Did not have time to visit the museum this time.

Princeton is delightful to walk through. The classic buildings, beautiful quads and lots of benches and chairs make it the perfect place for a stroll. The Holder and Blair Hall areas are especially picturesque. Then there are the museums and the auditorium and the theatre which are full of events and exhibitions. If it is sunny, this is the place... More

The school has beautiful campus in the center of Princeton. The architecture is stunning and old and new mesh well. We took a student walking tour and was able to visit most of the campus.

charming, great for a self guided tour, many events open to the public, but don't feed the students they are on a meal plan
