    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.
