Gainesville — UF's hometown — is where nature and culture meet.

The University of Florida's home base — Gainesville, Florida — is a crossroads where nature and culture meet in the very heart of north central Florida.

Located midway between the state’s Gulf and Atlantic coasts, it’s a lively, diverse community pulsing with school spirit and entrepreneurial innovation. Nearby nature trails, parks, lakes, rivers, and springs put the great outdoors within relaxing reach. And local museums, theaters, art galleries, music venues, and nightlife offer plenty to spark your interest and imagination.
