  • The only college stadium with a nursing suite. I understand that this suite was not needed by most people who attended the game. However, for those of us who needed it, it was absolutely amazing. It was great to be able to have a quiet place to feed and change a baby. Very nice, clean area with a TV showing the game, comfortable rocking chairs, super friendly staff, nice changing table, and cold water- a wonderful experience! Way to go Gators, very impressive!
  • I always enjoy watching the Florida Gators play football in "The Swamp". If you don't have on campus parking, there are a number of off campus options as well as using public transportation which is a stress free option. Getting and out of the stadium is no problem, especially if you don't bring bags in and the line generally takes less the five minutes. There are plenty of concession options. The food is generally decent and priced as one might expect for this type of venue. They accept cash and credit. I have season tickets with a padded seat and seat back, my experience is usually comfortable, but the only drawback is that the seats aren't wide and the space between rows is narrow, so things can get tight with the wrong combination of fellow game watchers. Overall, the experience is great.
  • Great venue. Wonderful atmosphere. Not a bad seat in the entire stadium. The snack bars and bathrooms are on the higher level floors. If you are coming here for a workout, then you will not be disappointed.
  • Awesome place. Typical stadium, those in search of air flow and comfortable seating will probably be disappointed, but facilities are clean and staff is helpful. Prices aren't outrageous. Tom Petty tribute was freaking amazing!
  • Nice stadium but no hand rails on the stairs to climb to higher level seats. Make sure to check handbag dimensions allowed before heading to the game.
