Close to SFC Campus
Most Gainesville student apartments cater to both UF and Santa Fe College students. However, options within 5 miles of SFC are very limited. If you're looking for an apartment walking distance to Santa Fe College, you will want to check out The Crossing at Santa Fe. This student housing community is the only by-the-bed student living community directly across the street from the college. With individually leased 3 and 4 bedroom options that include furniture and a private bathroom in every bedroom, this community is the ideal option for Santa Fe students.
Gainesville is a college town, which means all-inclusive living is a common feature of many nearby apartment communities. If you'd like to bundle your rent payment with all or partial utilities, as well as extras such as Internet and/or cable TV, this type of leasing agreement will work best for you. Keep in mind that many all-inclusive communities will rent each room separately in the unit, rather than leasing the entire place. You will typically have one or more roommates, so this can be a convenient way to make friends with other students. You can also find apartments that are already furnished with necessities such as living room and bedroom furniture. Our website will give you a clear and detailed overview of each community so you can make an informed decision before moving in.
Living in Northwest Gainesville
Santa Fe College, located in the Northwest section of Gainesville, is surrounded by several unique opportunities for shopping, dining and outdoor recreation. Just a few miles away, Devil's Millhopper Geological State Park is a gorgeous national landmark with a miniature rain forest, streams and an impressive sinkhole. The school itself has an exciting teaching zoo that offers scheduled group tours, as well as the Kika Silva Pla Planetarium with captivating shows throughout the year. While this area will give you plenty to do, you can always hop on I-75 and easily commute to other interesting areas in Gainesville, like Kanapaha Botanical Gardens or the Oaks Mall.
Frequently Asked Questions about Santa Fe College
Does Santa Fe College (SFC) have dorms or apartments on campus?
While dorms and on-campus apartments are not available at Santa Fe College, you'll have no trouble finding a place to rent just a few moments away. A great perk of living in Gainesville is the proximity of the college to I-75, a major highway that gets you from home to school much faster. This gives you access to a much wider selection of Gainesville apartments without adding much time to your daily commute. If you're trying to avoid the highway, you might want to check out the student apartments on SW 20th Ave., as this area is close to SFC campus with great bus routes. Still sad about not experiencing dorm-life? Don't forget that living in an apartment instead of dorm offers lots of extra perks, like giving you the chance to choose a pet-friendly community that allows cats, dogs, birds and more. For example, The Crossings at Santa Fe is a great pet-friendly selection that is directly across the street from the college. Legacy at Fort Clarke even has a doggie playground for your pets to enjoy!
