UF’s historic Florida Gym, located in the heart of campus, is available for open recreation basketball thanks to Student Government and RecSports.
The Florida Gym opened in 1949 as a 7,000-seat multi-purpose arena that was home to the Florida Gators men’s basketball team and was known as “Alligator Alley.” Most of the original floorplan has been remodeled as the building was adapted for different uses over the years, but the court surface remains and is used for student recreation and other purposes.
Situated next to Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, this historic building currently houses departmental and dean’s offices, research laboratories, two full-length basketball courts, six 100-plus seat lecture halls, classrooms, reading rooms, and faculty locker rooms.
