Swamp Rentals FAQs

Do UF students really ride the bus from their apartments to UF or Shands?

Riding the bus from an apartment to the University of Florida campus is quite common in Gainesville. Most of the apartments listed on Swamp Rentals are on a bus route – the vast majority of these apartments are on bus stops. UF has countless bus stops on campus, and it generally takes less time to ride from your apartment to campus on a bus than it does to drive to campus and find a parking spot. Ask any UF student – the University of Florida campus is notorious for not having student parking. You also mentioned Shands Hospital. Shands actually has a main transfer stop where multiple bus routes meet. Bottom line: riding the bus from your apartment to campus is generally your best bet.
