Lately there have been several incidences of Amazon packages being delivered to the wrong buildings and we are working to resolve the issue. In the meantime, if you see that a package is reported as delivered and you cannot find it, there is a good chance it was left at another Lawrence building by mistake. Check all other buildings for missing packages and report instances of mis-delivery to Amazon.
We contacted grounds and as of January 2017, they use de-icing salts containing potassium chloride, calcium chloride, hydrated magnesium acetate and sodium chloride.
The elevators in buildings 10 and 12 are equipped with an unusual safety feature. If the door tries to close and it is forced open three (3) times, the elevator will shut off. The elevator can only be restarted by a qualified person. To avoid this occurrence, please use the
Door Open button rather than just holding the door.
Smoking is prohibited in hallways, lounges, and common spaces, in accordance with the NJ Smokefree Air Act. Princeton’s policy is to require that smokers limit their smoking to outside areas, at least 25 feet away from buildings.
This policy is particularly relevant in cases where smokers have neighbors who may be bothered by or allergic to smoke. If a non-smoking neighbor approaches you, as a smoker, with a complaint, please be respectful of your neighbor and attempt to accommodate him by smoking outside, far enough from the building that the smoke will not be blown into any open windows.
(Updated Spring, 2016)
Lawrence Building 1 is currently a non-smoking building; however, all of graduate housing will become non-smoking (indoors) beginning in Fall 2016. Outdoor smoking will continue to be permitted at least 20 feet away from buildings at Lawrence.
With the unveiling of the new website, the Lawrence Apartments RSS feed is now active—subscribe today! RSS is a means of broadcasting changes to a website. It’s a convenient way to make sure that you always have up-to-date information, without having to check a particular website every day or receive emails about every change. (It’s sort of like Facebook’s information feed, but for following websites instead of friends.)

First, please understand that the Lawrence Committee is not qualified to advise you about tax laws and procedures, especially as the latter might change and we have neither the expertise nor the resources to keep up. The information below is provided "as is", and it is your responsibility to check that it is correct.
In previous years residents of the Lawrence apartments have been eligible for the tax rebate. The regulation change from year-to-year, however. The Office of the General Counsel of the university publishes some tax-related information for students, including information on the NJ state tax credit. You should consult the latest information at that site as well as your own tax advisor before filing your taxes.
If you go to a bank (you do not need to have an account) you can exchange a $10 bill for a roll of quarters. The committee has investigated putting change machines in the laundry room, but it is not viable to do so.
The emergency notification system includes contact information from SCORE. Please make sure that your contact information in TigerHub is up-to-date. For further information and complete guidelines for PTENS, please see the following link: http://web.princeton.edu/sites/emergency/PUENS-FAQ.html
If the gophers and bunnies can get in, why can’t you? (Seriously, the key that opens the building doors also opens the padlock on the garden gate.)
There is a large white metal "dumpster-style" donation box in parking lot #23 on campus. You can also go to the Nearly New Shop on Nassau at Olden.
