Welcome to Gainesville

Moving to a new city is exciting, and we’d like to show you all that Gainesville, FL has to offer.

Cheering on the Gators is a huge part of becoming a member of the Gator Nation. The best part is that most sporting events are free for students! Uf student ticket information and schedules can be found here.

Gainesville is home to many beautiful nature trails and state parks, including Paynes Prarie, that make for excellent opportunities to get outdoors and enjoy sunny Florida weather.

It also has a variety of cultural venues for you to explore. Founded over 40 years ago by UF graduates, The Hippodrome is located in historic Downtown Gainesville and continues to feature both plays and movies for every taste. If you’re interested in museums, visit the Cade Museum of Creativity and Invention. For art lovers, the annual Downtown Festival & Art Show is a must attend event.
