Information for Incoming Scholars
Apartments for first-term and full-year Members will be available starting September 1. Since most apartments are occupied over the summer and must be cleaned and prepared during August, September 1 is the earliest possible date of occupancy. Members should plan to arrive between September 1 and September 20, the beginning of term.
Please note that the Institute will be closed on September 6, in observance of Labor Day. However, the Public Safety Officer will be on duty in Fuld Hall and will distribute apartment key packets. The officer is regularly available on evenings and weekends to distribute key packets.
The Princeton Public Schools will reopen on September 9. Children are encouraged but not required to be in attendance on the first day of school, and the schools are accustomed to families arriving throughout the year.
Second-term Members may begin to arrive on January 1. Second term will begin on January 10. We regret that we are unable to accommodate arrivals earlier than January 1 since apartments assigned to second-term Members must be cleaned and prepared between December 26 and December 31. Please note that the Institute will be closed December 24 through January 1.
Housing assignments will be finalized and emailed during the summer for first-term and full-year visiting scholars and during the fall for second-term scholars. The mailing will include your apartment's address and telephone number, along with a floor plan and map highlighting the apartment's location.
Detailed housing information is available on the Campus Housing website.
When you first arrive at the Institute, you are encouraged to contact the School Administrative Officer. The Administrative Officer may provide you with your office key, School policies, and answer any questions concerning your appointment.
