Princeton University Chapel reviews
A remarkable building with quite a historical background. It is beautifully maintained, although it is a bit warm temperature wise.

Baptized my son here and let me tell you.... this chapel is simply AMAZING!!!!! Princeton University is full of eye catching architecture that will have you standing there and stating for minutes at a time. This chapel is one of those buildings. The real beauty lies on the inside. If the doors are open and you are able to walk in, you must check it out. The stained glass, woodwork, organ and the open large space will captivate. Check this place out!!!! Top 3 most beautiful chapels I've ever been in.
I went there for a random visit to see fountain of freedom and i loved the campus as well. As a visitor you cant go inside buildings but you can visit the campus. And you can get roadside paid parking as well. Have fun!
Beatiful place. Anyone going to princeton must visit the university. Architecture is amazing and you will feel as if you are in ancient Rome or Italy.
I stopped by looking for night services and didn't find them, but the chapel was open and I stepped inside for a short visit. It's beautiful, first of all. Heading back in the day to get a better look around. Off to the left of the church (facing the altar) there is a kneeler to pray with the eucharist in the vestibule (for Catholics). I was grateful as I'd missed mass at St Paul earlier. Even if you aren't of the faith (this is an ecumenical Christian chapel by the way) it is still amazing to see for it's architecture. Gothic arches, buttressed walls, and a stunning rose window flank a majestic nave. The pulpit is backed by a gigantic pipe organ and choir area. It's really a beautiful chapel.
A beautiful, architecturally exceptional, humbling, solemn and enveloping space… even for someone who isn’t religious. The stained glass is glorious. At a certain time each day the sun shines directly through the windows and the grand sandstone walls on the opposite side become joyously illuminated (see one of the photos I posted here). Every detail inside and out was thoughtfully designed and executed by craftspeople, inspired by European architecture. A docent shared that the pinecones sculpted into the exterior are a nod to the Pine family who helped pay the $2.5 million for its construction. This is a treasure surrounded by other architectural treasures you want to see!
