Founded in 2016 by the Princeton University Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies, the Princeton Athens Center for Research and Hellenic Studies provides an array of innovative educational opportunities for Princeton faculty and students to pursue onsite research and learning in Greece, engaging with Greek scholars and students, and collaborating with Greek institutions.

The Princeton Athens Center is located in the Stanley J. Seeger ’52 House, in the Pangrati neighborhood of Athens. Its central location allows students and faculty to take advantage of nearby libraries, research centers, museums, cultural venues, and archaeological sites. Situated in a quiet residential street, it connects with the vibrant and fast-changing urban environment of the city, in one of the most diverse and culturally rich neighborhoods of Athens.

The Princeton Athens Center features welcoming spaces: a small conference facility, a seminar room, and study rooms with carrels and lockers. Flexible meeting spaces, informal commons, shaded outdoor spaces, and a landscaped terrace, create a peaceful environment for research and study, as well as academic discussions and meetings.
