One of the most picturesque university campus that we have visited. It is a city by itself. With all the services you can imagine!

It's all in one place. It's a long 4 hours trip from Naples FL. Small city and the school was the the only reason of my visit there. Other attraction I don't know.

Beautiful campus to explore and relax on. The area that encompasses the historic district is an enjoyable walk. Stay till sundown so you can experience the nightly bat flight!

The University of Florida has a very beautiful campus. It is huge! A town within the town. It is not easy to park so bring your walking shoes!

We were not prepared for the lack of parking places in the Visitor Center/Reitz Union Garage. We arrived early, but with large groups of 80+ families touring, there was a shortage of all-day parking. Arrive 30 minutes prior to your tour and look for Rich, one of the parking attendants. He gave us a parking pass that allowed us to... More

My kids wanted to check out the campus because they hope to be Gators one day! They were very impressed with the size of the campus, multitude of studies, art on campus, and availability of all the basic needs!

As an Alabama resident, I did not want to like the University of Florida, but it was on my daughter's list of colleges to visit. We did both formal and informal tours of the campus and area. Grudgingly, I have to say it is a very nice campus with a good college town feel.

We took the walking tour conduted by a student and she was very informative. The only thing I didn't like was the fact that you could not go inside any of the bulidings... More
