West Gainesville Apartments -- A Nice Blend


As soon as you cross the University of Florida's western boundary, you'll be in the neighborhood that the locals call west Gainesville. This neighborhood stretches west from 34th Street, across I-75, all the way to 91st Street. It includes everything south of NW 8th Avenue, down to Archer Road, so this is a big area!

Why should you consider renting an apartment in west Gainesville?

- It's diverse

When you go apartment hunting in west Gainesville, you'll see everything from giant student communities to complexes that cater specifically to families and young professionals. This area is close to the UF campus, without being so close that you have to live surrounded by students. It's a popular neighborhood for students, but there are also a lot of "normal" residents here who don't go to UF.


- The shopping is great

The Oaks Mall sits on west Gainesville's northern boundary, and Butler Plaza sits on west Gainesville's southern boundary. Additionally, Tioga Town Center sits just a couple of miles west of west Gainesville, while Tower 24 Shopping Center is just west of I-75 on SW 20th Avenue. So, whether you need to run some of your regular errands or you want to treat yourself to a shopping spree, you'll have plenty of places to go!


- There's unique entertainment

Your west Gainesville apartment will only be a few short minutes from the UF Cultural Plaza, where the Harn Museum of Art, the Florida Museum of Natural History, and the University of Florida Performing Arts Center are all located. You'll also be close to Forest Park, which is a great place to let Fido run around while you have a leisurely picnic.

On the southern end of west Gainesville, you'll find Kanapaha Botanical Gardens, where you can tour more than a dozen different gardens, take guided walks, and enjoy special events that celebrate everything from Easter to Mothers' Day.


- You'll be close to plenty of job opportunities

As soon as you move into your west Gainesville apartment, you'll be only a few minutes from all of the job openings at the University of Florida, but living on this side of town offers much more than that! Many of the healthcare jobs are located on this side of town, and Tower Road has become a hub for local businesses. Whether you're a registered nurse, an insurance adjuster, an accountant, or some other type of professional, you'll find a wealth of job openings here.
