With Social 28 being just 28 steps away from the University of Florida campus, most residents of this apartment complex find it a convenient 5-10 minute walk to their classes. Biking is similarly enjoyable, with most campus destinations being accessible in ten minutes or less. The Reitz Student Union can be reached with ease in less than ten minutes by foot or bike.
Because the apartment complex is so close to the campus, there is no direct bus service provided by the Gainesville Regional Transit System. Students may, however, access multiple routes at the Reitz Student Union that will provide transportation to multiple areas of the city. Buses run several times each hour throughout the week and also offer limited schedules on the weekends.
Taking a car to campus from this apartment complex is certainly possible, but the benefit of doing so is very slight. It can actually take longer to drive and find parking than it can to simply walk from the apartments to the school campus.
Many of the best things which are close to Social 28 will be found on campus. From various student activities to thrilling UF sports action, there is plenty to keep residents busy on campus. Some of the best coffee shops in the city of Gainesville are located just a block or two from the complex. These include Einstein Bros Bagels, Know Where Coffee, and Starbucks at Library West.
Some of the more popular restaurants in the area are Little Hall Express, Grill Depot, and Felipe’s. There are also fast food restaurants such as KFC nearby.
