the gardens apartments are located off NW 75th street 1.1 miles south from Newberry Rd (SR 26)
it depends on what part of UF you are going to.
if you are accessing the north side of campus (O'connell Center) then you would want to take newberry rd (sr 26) straight in...a distance of approx 7.1 miles with traffic passing through the oaks mall.
if you are accessing the south side of campus (Shands Hospital) then you MIGHT want to take newberry rd to i-75 south to archer rd. its 11 miles to shands teaching hospital.
it all depends on your drive times. there are all kinds of back roads to pick from depending on the traffic patterns. of course rush hours are always slower times to drive in any city or town.
the gardens apts are located in a great area. if you need any help, let me know.
