          Monday & Friday, 10/3 & 10/5 at Horton-Hardgrave hall

          For the event on 10/3 – parking guidelines are not enforced on-campus after 5pm so you can park directly behind the building.

          For next day interviews on 10/5. You will receive a link to register your vehicle for a temporary parking pass. This will prevent you from receiving a ticket during your visit when parked in the correct zones/areas.

          Please only park in A, B or C zones around Lowder Hall or in the Magnolia/Donahue lot. If you are arriving after 4:45pm, you may park in any open space. You can download and use the War Eagle Parking app to help you find an open spot.

          You may also use the North Parking Deck indicated on the map below.

          Parking in North Deck

          Tuesday 10/4 at The Harbert Recruiting Center, Jordan-Hare Stadium

          Parking for events on-campus is difficult. We highly recommend utilizing a transportation service for traveling to the Career Fair. Uber and Lyft are transportation services available in the Auburn area. From most hotels and locations in Auburn this would likely cost you $10-$20 and save you significant time and frustration.

          Visitor parking is available on the 3rd and 4th level of the Stadium Parking Deck on Heisman Drive. Please allow yourself plenty of time to arrive and park as traffic can be very heavy at this time of day.

          You can pull to the LEFT SIDE before reaching the parking attendant to unload any display materials prior to parking. Please keep the main road clear, as this is a heavy traffic area for the Auburn transit buses. Once you unload your items please proceed driving down Heisman drive to the parking deck on the right.

          The Auburn University Parking Services office is open 7:15am – 4:15pm (Mon-Fri) and can be contacted at 334-844-4143. Their office is in the South Quad Parking Deck on the corner of Duncan Drive and Lem Morrison Drive.
