The 23-year-old Swiss international, who plays in his home country with Sion, has agreed to a four-year deal with the French club.
Grichting has been training with the squad since June and has impressed Roux enough to earn himself a permanent move to Stade Abbe Deschamps.
Roux has built up an exciting young squad at Auxerre and has added further youth to his outfit with his new signing.
The central defender will face stiff competition for places with the likes of Philippe Mexes, Jean-Alain Boumsong and new signing Nikola Jozic in Auxerre.
Roux is looking to strengthen his side ahead of their league and Champions League campaigns in the new season.
