ICSA Conference Travel and Hotel Information

Travel and Hotel

Princeton University is located in Princeton Borough, Mercer County, New Jersey, approximately 50 miles southwest of New York City, 35 miles southwest of Newark, New Jersey, and 45 miles northeast of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The most convenient airports to Princeton are John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in New York or Newark International Airport in Newark. Those arriving at Philadelphia International Airport in Philadelphia should check with their travel agent to determine if they can be booked onto a shuttle flight from Philadelphia to Newark. Airport bus shuttles are very expensive from Philadelphia Airport. Public transportation from Philadelphia is very time-consuming. You may consider renting a car and carpooling as an option. You can find car rental information from a travel agent or by going on to the airport websites.

The ideal method is to travel from Newark Liberty Airport to Nassau Inn. We suggest that you then fly out of the Philadelphia International Airport to return home.

Public Transportation Options:

Public transportation takes longer and you must purchase tickets prior to boarding. There is a $5 penalty for purchasing tickets on the train, so purchase your ticket first from a self-service kiosk or ticket window.

Newark International Airport: NJ Transit Northeast Corridor line will take you to Princeton and you can walk to the hotel.
