I’m starting law school at UF this fall. What are the closest apartments to the law school?

The Levin College of Law at the University of Florida is located in the northwest portion of campus by Frat Row. Due to this location, a mix of rental and family homes, rather than large apartment communities, primarily surround the law school. However, there are a few convenient options for law school students looking for Gainesville apartment that's within a couple miles of the law school. The options below are primarily located west of campus, making it a more convenient commute to your law classes. 

Museum Walk is a good choice for UF law students looking for a Gainesville apartment that's close to class. Museum Walk is located just off SW 34th Street near the intersection with SW 20thAvenue. This location means your commute is just a quick drive north up 34th street and down SW 2ndAvenue to the law school. Rooming with other law students is a good idea at Museum Walk, since it only has two or three bedroom floor plans available. Either option is around $520 per month. The apartments at Museum Walk come loaded with tons of great features, such as: walk-in closets, vaulted ceilings, balcony, alarm system, private bathrooms, washer and dryer, and dishwasher. When you are taking a break from all the studying, students can enjoy the included Cox TV and high speed internet, as well as included HBO channels.

Located a bit farther down SW 20th Avenue is Canopy. This beautiful Gainesville apartment community is a perfect place to unwind from the tons of law school studying you will be doing. The Canopy's pool area is like no other in Gainesville. The lagoon-style pool is surrounded by comfy cabanas and lounge chairs, and also has a poolside bar and grill area! This wonderful setting, combined with the never-ending Florida sunshine, creates the perfect relaxation area after those long cram sessions. Canopy also has plenty of other great community features that can help law students unwind, such as: a fitness center, indoor basketball court, virtual golf simulator, tanning bed, outdoor kitchen, game room, picnic area and nature views.

My final pick for law students looking for a close apartment to the Levin College of Law is Looking Glass Apartments. Located behind the strip of bars and restaurants that line midtown, these Gainesville apartments are perhaps the closest to the law school. Just a quick drive down University will have you in your law class in a matter of minutes. If you like to stay focused on your law studies, Looking Glass may be a good option for you. The studio or one-bedroom options create a distraction-free environment that will help you stay on the path to success during your time in law school. Apartments at Looking Glass come stocked with luxuries like: walk-in closets, bay windows, vaulted ceilings, upgraded countertops, private bathrooms, alarm system, and multiple ceiling fans. Looking Glass does not have an option for furnished rooms, however, so make sure you have plenty of furniture!
