If you are attending the University of Florida in the Fall of 2016, it is not too early to prepare. Learning how to attend UF is almost as important at learning at UF. You’ll want to explore your options with getting involved in campus activities. It can be valuable to spend time learning about Gainesville’s public transportation system. Discovering the area’s many local and state parks can expand your recreational opportunities. It is also not too early to narrow down your choices for college student housing.
Many base their college student housing options strictly on budgeting, but there are other factors to consider. An inexpensive apartment that is distant from campus will add to your transportation expenses. Older living spaces may be cheaper, but you may end up paying more for utilities. Communities that don’t offer recreational opportunities could add to your entertainment expense. Even the location and type of laundry facilities can add to expenses. To make the best housing choice, you should look at all aspects of your options.
One impressive housing option for students attending the University of Florida in the Fall of 2016 is the brand new Retreat at Gainesville. The Retreat takes college student housing to the next level.
The Retreat at Gainesville was designed specifically for students attending UF. It was constructed with elements that are conducive to a successful learning and living experience. It starts with quality building materials and floor plans that minimize shared walls. Our cottage and townhome style apartments offer more privacy and are energy efficient. The Retreat is a limited access community with privacy fences, security systems, and on-site management. Apartments range from two to six bedroom options with each bedroom having its own private bath and walk-in closet. Kitchens feature upgraded counter tops and stainless steel appliances. Every unit has its own full-sized washer and dryer. Apartments have ceiling fans, balconies and patios.
Shared amenities at The Retreat at Gainesville are also impressive. Our resort style pool is one of the largest in the Gainesville area. There is plenty of green space and an outdoor pavilion for tailgate parties and cookouts. An outdoor volleyball court is available. The Clubhouse at The Retreat features a modern fitness center, coffee shop, game room, and group study areas. High speed WiFi is accessible throughout our community.
The Retreat not only provides a roommate matching service, but also offers individual leases. This makes residents responsible for their own share of the lease. There are furniture options available and even a utilities included choice.
It is not to early to secure your space at The Retreat at Gainesville. The Retreat is now leasing 2 to 6 bedroom apartments for fall of 2016 classes. We encourage you to contact The Retreat at Gainesville to learn more. There is simply not a more impressive college student housing choice for those attending the University of Florida.
