If approaching from the south, get off I-75 at Exit 384 and take Archer Road east into Gainesville. If coming from the north, exit at Exit 387 and follow Newberry Road (which becomes University Ave.) east toward the University of Florida. Archer Road and University Avenue define the southern and northern boundaries of the University’s campus, respectively.


Alachua County is in north central Florida and the College can be found at the heart of the county. Sited in Gainesville, the University is a landmark in north Florida and many of the College’s faculty and students contribute to the development of the area.
