Geography

Aulnois-sous-Laon is located some 30 km south-east of Saint-Quentin and 5 km due north of Laon. The A26 autoroute passes through the north-eastern part of the commune but has no exit in the commune. The D967 road also passes through the commune from Crecy-sur-Serre in the north continuing to Laon in the south. The village can be accessed by the D541 branching west from the D967 passing through the village and continuing west to Vivaise. The D545 road also come from the south through the village and continues north-east to Barenton-Bugny. The commune is predominantly farmland with a little forest.[3]

The Ru d'Alnois rises south of the village and flows north-east changing to the Ruisseau de Longuedeau and forming the north-eastern border of the commune before continuing north-east joining the Ru des Barentons which eventually joins the Souche river at Barenton-sur-Serre.[3]
