Campus View Place
Located just across the street from the University of Florida campus, Campus View Place is one of the most convenient living locations for students. These apartments are just one block away from Sorority Row and two blocks from Norman Hall. Those who wish to walk to school will find that they can access many important areas and buildings in as little as ten minutes.
The Gainesville Regional Transit System provides bus service to and from the university via ten different routes. All of these routes can be accessed at the Reitz Union on campus. Buses can be used to reach points such as the Shands Hospital and University Commons. In most cases, it takes 10-15 minutes or less by bus to arrive at a number of campus destinations.
Those who prefer to drive their own vehicle can be on campus in less than five minutes. The great majority of students living in this complex, however, prefer the convenience of walking, biking, or taking the bus over using their own vehicle.
There are a number of restaurants, retail centers, bars, and entertainment venues within easy walking distance of Campus View Place. Among the most popular of these is the Terrace Market Cafe, a coffeehouse where students gather throughout the day and evening. Banking is available at the Campus USA Credit Union which is located on SW 5th Avenue.
For affordable dining, students can enjoy Subway, Arby’s, Wendy’s, and Panda Express. All of these establishments are less than one-half mile away and can be reached with a five to seven-minute walk. One of the nicer full-service restaurants in the area is Blue Gill Quality Food.
Groceries can be purchased at the Publix market or Winn-Dixie which are both located approximately one-half mile from these apartments. When the time comes to relax after a hard day of classes, students like to visit Mother’s Pub & Grill. This bar serves great food and drink in an atmosphere that celebrates college life. There is also the Backstage Lounge which offers great live music by local and regional artists.
