Spiritual students moving into Gainesville for the first time will probably have to find a new place to pray, meditate or study their beliefs.

Fortunately, the community offers places of worship that practice a wide range of beliefs from Christianity to Hare Krishna.

We know you're busy buying snazzy matching accessories for your new dorm room or getting acquainted with your classes. Luckily for you, we have already heard the calling and did some of the divine work for you.

These places are just a hop and a skip away from the UF campus (except for the asterisked ones - you may need to drive a bit for those), so go ahead and find a place that fits your religious needs.
