UF welcomes students for Fall
-Cynthia Roldán Hernández
The University of Florida campus is bustling once again, after more than a year since the pandemic forced the institution to switch to online learning and later a hybrid version of limited in-person courses and online.
Students are attending 4,678 unique courses on campus this Fall. On Tuesday, students began moving into UF’s residence halls, which are full this semester with 7,804 Gators.
Throughout the week leading up to the first day of classes, students explored the campus and walked to and from area stores with gear for their dorm rooms.
“I’m excited for in-person classes,” Bergman said. “It’s really nice. I hope it stays that way.”
To celebrate the first in-person semester since Spring 2020, the university’s Student Government has organized a free kickoff concert for students featuring Brockhampton and Deb Never. The concert will be held at the Stephen C. O’ Connell Center at 7 p.m.
Additionally, for students who want to be vaccinated against COVID-19, Student Life will host pop-up vaccination sites throughout campus at different locations, including the Reitz Union and Plaza of the Americas. For a complete list of vaccination sites and schedules, visit UF Health.
If you are a student looking for off-campus housing, we still have rooms available for rent. Search under available rentals to see pictures, get additional information and schedule a showing.
