Students, staff, and faculty of the University of Florida who are looking for a lovely apartment that’s not too far away from campus will love Fox Hollow. This complex offers cozy one-bedroom apartments and two-bedroom floor plans that are great for sharing with a roommate. This pet-friendly community features a gated entrance and a lovely, well-kept pool, and each apartment has a patio or balcony.
For students and staff wanting to get to campus easily, Fox Hollow is only about five miles from the Reitz Student Union in the center of campus. While it’s too far to comfortably walk, riding a bike is a great option and takes less than 30 minutes, and by car, it’s only a 20-minute commute.
There are two easy ways to reach campus, depending on where your classes or destination is. For students heading to the northeast part of campus, near Library West or the College of Business, the easiest method is to turn right to go north out of the complex, then make a right to go east on Newberry Road. At NW 34th Street, Newberry Road splits into SW 2nd Avenue, which cuts through campus, and W. University Avenue, which borders the north side of campus.
The south side of campus is where you will find most of the science-based buildings, including the College of Dentistry and College of Engineering. If you prefer, you can take the same route, except turn south along SW 13th Street which runs along the east side of campus and turn onto campus from SW Archer Road or Museum Road. You can also take I-75 south, and take Exit 384, and head east on SW Archer Road to get to the southern campus destinations.
When you want to get out, there are plenty of places near Fox Hollow. The Oaks Mall and the surrounding area is a popular shopping and dining spot and is only about 10 minutes by car via NW 75th Street and Newberry Road. Hop I-75 South to make it to the grocery stores, fun shopping, dining, and movie theater at the Butler Plaza area, and if you want to grab a drink or hang out with your friends near campus, there’s plenty of options along University Avenue.
For students preferring to take the bus, there is a stop for the #75 route which goes from the Oaks Mall to the Butler Transfer Station. Take the bus to the transfer station, then take the #1 or #12 routes to reach virtually anywhere on campus easily. The #75 will take you to both the Oaks Mall and the Butler Transfer Station, which is close to a Publix Grocery, Target, and plenty of great shopping and dining, too.
