Huntsville Research Center Campus Additional

The Auburn University Research and Innovation Campus has quickly become the Huntsville community’s primary connection to the research and resources of Auburn University. 

Only minutes from the Gate 9 entrance to Redstone Arsenal, the facility’s highly visible 9-acre property is located within Huntsville's Cummings Research Park close to numerous defense and aerospace collaborators, as well as the Bridge Street commercial development and Hudson Alpha.

Home to the Auburn University Applied Research Institute, the campus facilitates cross-domain collaboration among agencies, and supplies our partners access to our talented student researchers pursuing fields in Defense, Aerospace and Biotech sectors. It is well equipped to support applied research and development work for Huntsville / Redstone customers as well as hosting alumni and development events.
