Murphree Area

Buckman Hall •  Fletcher Hall •  Murphree Hall •  Sledd Hall •  Thomas Hall

The Murphree Area is one of the most beautiful areas on the University of Florida campus and is comprised of 5 traditional residence halls: Buckman Hall, Fletcher Hall, Murphree Hall, Sledd Hall, and Thomas Hall. It is located near Library West, many UF Classrooms, the Academic Advising Center, Racquet Club Dining Center, Florida Gym, the Hub, O’Connell Center, and Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.

The Murphree Area has the oldest buildings on campus that were later converted into residence halls, therefore no two rooms in the area are the same. Buckman and Thomas Hall were the original University of Florida buildings, and are both listed on the National Register of Historic places. Central AC was recently installed in Buckman and Thomas.
