Buckman Hall is a historic building located in Murphree Area on the University of Florida campus in Gainesville, Florida, United States. It was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places on January 11, 1974.
From 1974 to 2003, Buckman Hall functioned as a student cooperative dormitory. In exchange for lower rental rates, students performed much of the day-to-day maintenance themselves, such as general housekeeping and minor plumbing repairs. Residents also elected their own officers, who had the authority to make decisions concerning many aspects of residence hall life, a responsibility usually filled by resident assistants.
Buckman Hall has been used as a University of Florida dormitory since 1906.
Buckman Hall is named after Henry Holland Buckman.
