Walking on Campus

Princeton University’s campus is always open to families. Stroll through our gardens, view our outdoor sculpture collection, visit a Gothic courtyard, and say hello to the tigers guarding Nassau Hall. Picnic in our green spaces or grab a quick bite at the food court of the Frist Campus Center (Frist Campus Center is temporarily closed). We’ll see you on campus!


Princeton's gargoyles, the small grotesque animal or human figures carved in stone, can be found at dozens of locations on everything from downspouts to arches. This self-guided tour will lead you across campus in search of our stupendous stone guardians.


Go on a tiger Safari!  Visit the Princetoniana webpage to see a preview of the tigers hiding on campus.  How many can you find?
