Highly recommend the UF Bookstore for Gator Gear. They have everything clothing wise you could want and especially items that are sport specific. We were even given a 30% off coupon. Workers were extremely helpful in finding specific items.

As a student I found UF to be over-rated, poor teaching and impersonal. As for the athletics, these days their crowds are all just a bunch of retired people that have moved to the area--few hot babes. If you find that interesting, this is the...More

I absolutely loved my four years at UF. A great place to take your studies seriously, but also to unwind. It's great to be a Florida Gator!

Lots of good looking buildings, its definitely a place for a nice stroll on a weekend - the weekdays are very busy here. Not sure I liked how some of the students drove though.

It is an university town, and the experience on tailgating during a soccer match was just quite interesting given its many frat and sorority houses. But that aside, the Gators are everywhere, from sport gear to souvenirs. The campus is large, and it is worth...More

I do not know of a shuttle. Please be aware that Orlando is two hours away so don't take a taxi as it would be very expensive!

The University will give out visitor parking passes which allows you to park in the parking lots and the garages. This is not an option on game days however. UF is a non motorized campus so no cars directly on the campus.
