Campus Tours

Princeton University offers tours of the campus with Orange Key Tours. The School does not conduct tours.

Meeting With Faculty and Students

Prospective students may review the faculty directory to determine shared interest areas and reach out directly. The graduate admissions office does not put prospective students in touch with faculty. Conversations with faculty carry no weight in the admissions process.
