Spacious Floor Plans

JMU students never have to worry about finding the perfect JMU apartments. At The Retreat, we offer more than 13 different floor plan options, including two-bedroom apartments, three-bedroom apartments, four-bedroom apartments, and five-bedroom apartments, so residents can always live right where they want to be. Each cottage comes with private bedrooms, private bathrooms, designer interiors, high-quality construction, and ample storage space.

Roommate-Matching Services

Finding the perfect roommate can sometimes be challenging, especially if residents are new JMU students or just moving to the Harrisonburg area. Luckily, at The Retreat, we provide complementary roommate-matching services. The process is simple — residents fill out a questionnaire asking about their daily schedule, habits, hobbies, and interests, among other questions. Our management team then matches residents with similar interests and schedules. Contact us to learn more about our roommate-matching services.

Amenities For Work & Play

The team behind The Retreat at Harrisonburg has made it their mission to create a community that focuses on helping residents be successful in college. Here, residents can gather some friends and relax in the clubhouse, have fun in the sun at our pool area, challenge their roommates or peers to a game of bag toss, and work up a sweat in the fitness center — no more gym fees! When it’s time to hit the books, they can study up in the 24/7 computer lab, private study rooms, or an Internet cafe. Whatever they want to do, we have it all here. Contact us to learn more about all of the community amenities we have to offer Dukes.

Secure Student Housing

Providing our residents with a secure living space and community is what we do at The Retreat. All of our cottages are outfitted with state-of-the-art electronic apartment entry systems, on-site security, and electronic key fobs. We also keep detailed and complete entry logs. Residents never have to worry about duplicating their key — maintenance keys only work during certain hours. With all of this, it’s easy for our residents to rest easy knowing they live in a secure off campus housing community near JMU.

Furnished & Unfurnished Cottages

At The Retreat, we want to make Dukes feel right at home. That’s why we offer both furnished and unfurnished apartments for JMU students. Our fully furnished cottages come complete with bedroom and common area furniture, including a queen-size mattress and bed frame. Each apartment is also equipped with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, hardwood-style flooring, and ceiling fans, among other high-end features. Unfurnished units are also available. Get in touch with us to learn more about our designer furniture packages.

Pet-Friendly Community

We know that pets are a cherished member of the family. That’s why, at The Retreat, we welcome residents with furry friends. Our property is home to expansive green spaces, so your student and their dog can enjoy quality time together outdoors. There’s also plenty of space inside each cottage for them to play and relax. Residents planning on bringing their pets might be required to pay an additional security deposit or cleaning fee. Contact our office to learn more about our pet policy and restrictions.
