Life in Gainsville & at the University of Florida

The University of Florida is located about two miles from downtown Gainesville, which has a population of around 150,000. It is very much a college town thanks to the university's 50,000 students. The Florida Gators sports teams compete in the NCAA Division I Southeastern Conference and the Gator football team plays in the Ben Hill Griffin Stadium – commonly known as the "The Swamp". Every Friday all students can partake in Gator Nights, which offer free late-night entertainment and a midnight breakfast. Located in the Northern part of Florida it is a 90-minute drive to Orlando and five hours to Miami or Atlanta. Other leisure activities are paddling and canoeing on the scenic rivers or hiking and biking on the 30 miles of trails round Gainsville.
