How to get to Auburn:


Auburn, Alabama is located at exit 51 on I-85. I-85 intersects with other highways between Montgomery, Alabama and Atlanta, Georgia, including Highway 280, Highway 80, Highway 29, and Highway 431. Please refer to the map below for further directions, and we recommend for specific directions.


Auburn, Alabama, is located about 90 minutes southwest of Atlanta, Georgia, and is an easy drive down I-85 South from the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. Airports in Columbus, Georgia, and Montgomery, Alabama, also serve Auburn.

If you fly, we recommend that you fly into Atlanta, Georgia, and rent a car. Follow the link from the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport web site. Click on Ground Transportation on the left sidebar and then Car Rentals on the right sidebar for a list of rental car companies. Once you have your car, take I-85 South straight out of the airport, and drive to AL exit 51. Turn right, and the Auburn University Hotel and Conference Center will be about ten minutes down College Street on the right.

Alternatively, you may choose to take the shuttle from Atlanta, Georgia, to Auburn, Alabama. The shuttle service, Express 85, runs from Atlanta to Auburn (and back again) several times a day, and they will drop you off at the Auburn University Hotel and Conference Center. They will also pick you up from the hotel on the day you leave. Follow the link for their schedule and pricing; reservations should be made early but can be made up to 24 hours in advance.

An alternative airport is the Birmingham International Airport (BHM), located about 2 hours northwest of Auburn University. Birmingham International Airport offers other airlines that do not run to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta Airport, such as Southwest Airlines. Also, Birmingham International Airport resides in the central time zone, like Auburn University, and may make planning your trip easier.

From the airport itself, travelers take I-20 for approximately 4 miles, before exiting onto 280 East for the rest of the duration to Auburn. The drive takes approximately two hours. All rental car services can be found on Birmingham International Airport web site, by scrolling over to Passenger Information and then down to Parking and Ground Transportation. All rental car service is located toward the bottom of the webpage.

** Please remember while you are traveling that Georgia is in the Eastern time zone and Alabama is in the Central time zone **
