Without a doubt, the Swamp is the best college stadium in the country. It's loud. It's well-maintained. Great security and fan support. Virtually all of the seats have a good view of the field and most have a very good to excellent view. Just be...More

Great place for a workout - running the stairs, or laps. It is sometimes closed in accordance with UF events held there, so check the hours before you visit.

Ben Hill is awesome! There are a lot of stupid rules every year they get worse. Rules apply to some, but not everyone which is pretty normal for UF

There are plenty of places to park to tailgate, You can go online and pull up UF parking and they have a map showing you where you can park without a permit. You will have lots of fun!
