West Gainesville

Nestled West of UF's Campus
Located just West of the University of Florida is an up and coming collection of apartments, restaurants, shopping, and activities. Students and young professionals find themselves a short drive, bike, or bus ride from Crunch Fitness, UF’s Southwest Rec, Publix, and Gainesville favorite, Mi Apa. This diverse area provides all needs for a busy resident, and the recently renovated apartments make it an attractive, but affordable location.

West Gainesville is also a highly desired area for UF Law School Students who want to be close to the Levin College of Law, as it puts them less than 1 mile from their classes and essentials like groceries. Bus routes make travel to campus and around Gainesville convenient, but students can also drive, bike, or take a scooter/moped to campus! This area is nestled near campus and Archer Road, making its location ideal for the person looking for access to everything.

West Gainesville — 8.2/10 Rating (based on 16 neighborhood reviews)
Management is always putting on events and it is a very interactive community. You can tell they really care about making this a home instead of just somewhere that collects money. I am so close to all of the Butler Plaza stores that I could walk if I so choose. Right across the street are beautiful nature trails and you see the most gorgeous sunsets. To get to the law school it only takes me five minutes. I am also about five-ten minutes from the highway. Love this location.

It's close to everything, and it's the best place to be if you're a law student.

The neighborhood is quiet. The community is gated. Although management has recently had trouble with a broken part on one of the gates, it doesn’t take away from the security of the complex. There is a sheriff on-site at all times.

Right off of 34th Ave. When the Publix nearby is completed, the location and neighborhood will improve.

Neighborhood is very safe. It is on the west side of campus so close to the law school and steps away from Route 5 transit and a Publix. Very little nightlife and none within walking distance.

Neighborhood is scenic but the residents are noisy and some have sticky fingers so be careful having packages delivered.

Right on 34th St., so there is traffic noise if you're close to the front of the complex.

I've waved to and greeted people. Currently, we're in a pandemic, so getting to know neighbors has not been a regular occurrence.
