Activities

Living on campus makes the dynamic and culturally rich university town of Princeton your “home town” during the academic year.
The Hun School’s 45-acre campus is within walking distance of Princeton’s town center and the campus of Princeton University. Princeton, New Jersey is a large, cosmopolitan town. Its tree-lined streets, many parks, rich arts and cultural resources, and safe, friendly, residential character all make Princeton a perfect setting for students.

Our five-day class schedule allows a thoughtfully planned program of weekend activities and off-campus trips accessible to every student. Activities are designed to complement classroom learning—as well as provide informal time students need to relax, explore, and have fun with friends.
