o   The people who work for Housing are nice, everything's pretty clean, repairs are taken care of reasonably quickly through an online work-order system, and at any rate, its home sweet home. Almost anyone you talk to will tell you that living on campus was a valuable and fun experience (College Prowler).

o   Student Comments

-  I'd recommend staying in a more freshman-oriented dorm your first year (Campus Confidential).

-  Fletcher and Murphree have a weird layout. There are less people in your section/floor than other dorms and the rooms are all different sizes - it is basically just luck of the draw. You could end up living like a princess in terms of space, or you could have two people crammed in a room that is tiny (Campus Confidential).

-  The Murphree area is on the other edge of campus, but it is pretty centrally located because it is right near downtown and the west library(Campus Confidential).

-  Broward (and Jennings as well) is the traditional Freshman Dorm. The dorms are very social, and Living in Broward and Jennings is a great experience for the freshman who is looking to meet new people and get acclimated to the University of Florida. However you do have a 7-10 minute walk to classes (College Prowler).

-  Jennings (and Broward as well) is the traditional Freshman Dorm. Both dorms are very social. Living in Broward and Jennings is a great experience for the freshman who is looking to meet new people and get acclimated to the University of Florida. However, there is a 7-10 minute walk to class (College Prowler).

-  The rooms are rather small, but the common area is really nice. We have a pool table, Ping-Pong table, and foosball table. Jennings has a good location; it's near one of the two main dining halls (College Prowler).

-  I've met a lot of friends in Jennings hall. Most students who live off campus have trouble making friends from what I hear (College Prowler).

-  The rooms in Beaty are small and it's far away from the central area of campus. It can also be hard to meet people because of the apartment-style layout (Campus Confidential).

-  Most of the residents in Beaty are freshman, and though it is not as social as some of the dorms with public bathrooms, it is still easy to make friends there. Most of my friends in college are people I've met in Beaty (Campus Confidential).

-  Although Beaty is small it's certainly not smaller than the other dorms. I definitely prefer Beaty to the dorms that are just bedrooms with standard college bedding and don't have a kitchen/common area. Some of my friends find it difficult to live without a common area if one roommate sleeps earlier/later than the other. Also, the rooms are not cramped because of the way they are set up. Rooms and Broward and Jennings often seem smaller (Campus Confidential)

-  Beaty is partly on the outskirts of campus (Campus Confidential)

o   Student Comments

-  Graham and Simpson are traditional-style dorms. The rooms are a nice size, and these dorms are social but not as loud as Broward/Rawlings/Jennings etc. They do have a community bathroom, but I found this to be a plus because the bathrooms are cleaned daily during the week and there is ALWAYS a shower/stall open (in suite-style dorms where only a few people share a bathroom, or in dorms like Murphree where there are 8 girls to one shower, you often have the problem of people's schedules overlapping inconveniently - imagine trying to get to class when you need to shower and your neighbor who takes hour-long showers is in the bathroom). Also, Graham and Simpson are close to both Gator Dining (one of the two meal plan cafeterias on campus) and a campus convenience store that's open late. (Campus Confidential)

-  Lakeside is very nice. However, it's about a mile from campus and you have to take a bus or drive everywhere (parking on campus is tough). Some of my friends like it a lot, and some have found that they have had a hard time making friends because it is pretty secluded (Campus Confidential)

-  Lakeside is a Great Dorm! Very nice apartment style rooms, kitchen, nice bathroom, etc. One of the nicest dorms at UF. But it's pretty far from campus (Campus Confidential).
