Parking & Directions

Bowen Hall is located at 70 Prospect Ave.  Visitors may use the university parking garage adjacent to Bowen Hall, accessible from Prospect Ave.  Please use the front entrance (off Prospect Ave) to enter Bowen Hall due to construction behind the building.  Metered parking is also available on Olden, Prospect Ave, and William streets. 

Google maps indicates the address as slightly southwest of the actual location of Bowen Hall.  For GPS use please make sure to use 70 Prospect Ave in Princeton – there are Prospect Streets also in Kingston and Trenton that are not the right venue.  

If you have never visited the Princeton Campus before will provide you with an overview of how to reach the campus, whether driving, flying or traveling by train.
