It is very varied and depends on which one of six residential colleges you will be randomly assigned to. Each of them is very different and has their own set of pros and cons. Some of colleges are further away from the campus like Forbes but Rockey and Mathey, on the other hand, are much closer to the Princeton’s town and are also connected to each other. Whitman is the newest residential college even though it was built to fit the overall aesthetic. So overall, Princeton housing is very diverse and for the first two years your lodging depends on luck.
