The Mudd Library is the central repository for Princeton University senior theses. The senior thesis collection contains over 60,000 theses that were written by Princeton undergraduate students from 1924 to the present.
Senior theses created between 1924-2012 are in bound or unbound paper copies, or are on microfiche and can only be viewed in person in our reading room.
Senior theses created in 2013 and later are in digital format (mainly PDFs) and are stored in our digital repository, DataSpace.
A small percentage of digital theses (2013 to present) are restricted to viewing on computers in the Mudd Library (Walk-in Access) or are temporally restricted from access (embargoed). Restrictions are noted in their DataSpace record.
You do not need to submit a request to view theses in digital format (2013 and later) as you can access them on Dataspace if connected to the University network or in person.
Theses created in 2012 and earlier must be viewed in the Mudd Library reading room unless their digitized version is available on Dataspace for those connected to the University network.
