Swamp Rentals FAQs

My daughter was just accepted into UF. Is it common for a UF student to live in off-campus apartments?

Absolutely. There are a limited number of UF dorms, so literally thousands of freshmen at the University of Florida rent off-campus apartments. Don’t worry about the apartment environment in Gainesville… most student apartments for UF freshmen are close to campus. They tend to be quiet during the week. And the staff at some of the apartments will even meet your student out by the bus stop with breakfast during exam time. So, yes, the Gainesville apartment atmosphere can be a great place for your UF student to live.
