Finding a Place to Live
As a true college-town, Gainesville follows a predictable movement of residents. There are plenty of rental units in the Gainesville area and close to campus. Prices of rental units vary to match its amenities. We encourage you to live close to campus.
The University of Florida Housing Department has various apartment complexes on campus for graduate students and students with families. These apartments vary from one to two bedrooms as well as flat and town-house units. Contact the Housing Department through their Website or call them at 352-392-2161. They will mail you information on housing and an application form. In addition, The Continuum, a graduate community in partnership with the University of Florida Department of Housing and Residence Education, opened in Fall 2011.
For off-campus housing information, visit Off-Campus Life to access the Gator Guide to Off-Campus Life. Off-Campus Life also offers students a “ housing locator” to search for housing and to find roommates.

If you are looking to have a law student as a roommate, the University of Florida Levin College of Law Office of Admissions has developed a private, secure, Web-based referral site exclusively for new and existing Levin College of Law students to assist them with finding roommates. Please note that the Levin College of Law is not responsible for information posted through this forum.
