Thank you for your interest in Auburn University, a historic land, sea, and space grant institution - among the few to be so designated - located in the beautiful small town of Auburn, Alabama, near the Georgia state line. More than 25,000 students attend Auburn, 40 percent of whom are from out of state. Since the University opened in 1856, more than 250,000 students have graduated with Auburn degrees, and today Auburn is a comprehensive research and doctoral institution, offering 140 undergraduate majors, an Honors College, and many graduate and professional programs. Through its mission of instruction, research, and outreach, Auburn remains dedicated to improving the lives of citizens in the state, region, and nation.

Living in the Auburn Community

Auburn has more than 1,400 full- and part-time faculty and 4,200 staff members, and is located in a community of some 38,000 people. The downtown village of Auburn is directly adjacent to the campus, which comprises nearly 1,900 pedestrian-friendly acres. Student and educational support services provide the student community with counseling and academic resources, and more than 300 student organizations and 40 learning communities help students become actively involved and engaged with campus life. From Camp War Eagle orientation for new freshmen to advising to career services, the campus helps students from their first day through graduation. A new 240,000 square foot recreation and wellness center was completed in Spring 2013.
