Spring 2023 Housing Fair
Friday, March 24, 10 AM-1 PM
The SG Housing Fair helps students gain a better understanding of what off-campus housing communities have to offer. The Student Government Housing Affairs Cabinet hosts this event twice a year, once during the fall semester, and the other during the spring semester. The Housing Fair is the largest housing event at the University of Florida.
Over three hours, communities from all over Gainesville will be in attendance to answer questions and explain the benefits of choosing their communities. This is the easiest way to get familiar with your off-campus living options, and available resources for off-campus students!
