Is Princeton University part of the NJ government?

Princeton is a private university. You may have it confused with Rutgers, which is the state university of NJ.
Adding to the confusion, The College of New Jersey is a smaller school, formerly known as Trenton State University. Additionally, Princeton University's original name was The College of New Jersey. Princeton changed to their current name in 1896.
Edited to add: Carrying on with this inane theme, about 2 months ago I was at Princeton to photograph their cross country meet and a pair of intercollegiate Rugby matches. In the women's match, Princeton played The College of New Jersey.

It's not a public university, if that's what you mean. It's a private not-for-profit.
