Graduation is held at the Auburn Arena on Heisman Drive. The main entrance to the building is on the north side.
Guest drop-off is available by traveling west on Heisman Drive from South Donahue Drive and then turning right just past the Auburn Arena before reaching Wire Road. There will be signs indicating “Guest Drop-off.” This is not a regular road but will allow guests to be dropped off very close to the arena entrance. Drivers can then park in one of the graduation parking lots detailed below.
