University of Florida
A little bit further from campus but you do get more bang for your buck out here.
In West Gainesville, your neighbors will be more spaced out, since there are more houses available compared to other places on campus. Expect to have to drive a little further to campus, but public transit system gets you around fairly well. You will fall in love with this neighborhood if you like being away from campus and having more of your own personal space.
