University Club Gainesville is located about 1.5 miles from the southwestern corner of the University of Florida campus. This region of campus is home to the Natural Area Teaching Laboratory, the Harn Museum of Art and the Florida Museum of Natural History. It takes about five minutes to drive to this area if you take SW 23rd Terrace to Archer Road and then turn right on SW 34th Street. This road runs along the western edge of campus, allowing you to turn right on any road to reach your final campus destination.
You can reach parking lots on the southern edge of campus in about five minutes while lots further northeast are within a 10-minute drive. If you prefer to walk or ride a bike to the school, you can reach the center of campus in about 30 minutes on foot, and the areas further north will take up to 45 minutes. The bike ride will cut this commute time more than in half. This location also allows you to walk or bike to many restaurants and retail stores as well as Shands Hospital and the VA Medical Center.
