For roommate matching, you should indicate that you are in graduate school so maybe they'll match you with other graduate students. Like we mentioned before, graduate students can live in any apartment; however, there is a unique community in Gainesville that only allows students who are in a graduate program.

Can graduate students qualify to live in non-student housing?
Graduate students can choose to live in conventional apartment communities if they are looking for something with more privacy.

This will allow them to be listed on the lease and meet income requirements despite your student status.
