In total 608 residents can be accommodated, and Hume Hall is located in the heart of the UF campus. The facility has a commons building, a number of multimedia-capable classrooms, faculty offices with an on-site academic advisers, a large activity room, and an information desk.[1]

Graduate & Family Housing

The graduate and family housing complexes are: Corry Village, Diamond Village, Maguire Village, Tanglewood Village, and University Village South. In addition they may reside in the UF affiliate The Continuum.[2]

Dependent children residing in the student housing with their parents are assigned to schools in the Alachua County Public Schools. As of 2015, residents of Diamond Village, Maguire Village, Tanglewood Village, and University Village South are assigned to Idylwild Elementary School. Corry Village and The Continuum are in the zone for Finley Elementary School. Kanapaha Middle School and Gainesville High School are the assigned secondary schools for all of the properties except for Tanglewood Village, which is instead assigned to Lincoln Middle School and Eastside High School.[2][3]
