We have two-, three-, and four-bedroom townhomes and thirteen floor plans, each with a unique layout, square footage, and monthly rate. Every floor plan has spacious common areas and individual bedrooms with private bathrooms and walk-in closets. The rooms are rented out individually, so applicants may apply by themselves or with roommates. All of the units are furnished and move-in ready.

Although many UNT student apartments are said to be “furnished,” no other housing community has the same definition of the word as The Retreat at Denton. Here, bedrooms have bed frames, mattresses, and desks, while living rooms feature couches, tables, and flatscreen TVs. High-speed WiFi is also available throughout the units. In the kitchens, residents find gourmet setups that include stainless steel appliances and dining areas large enough for everyone in the household. Other notable features include laundry rooms with full-size washer and dryer units and decks or patios with outdoor furniture.

We offer free roommate-matching services to all of our residents. Transfer students, in particular, find this service convenient for finding roommates. Applicants simply complete the questionnaire about hobbies and lifestyle preferences, and based on those answers, we’ll find suitable roommates for them.

We have amenities that help transfer students meet their two main goals: to concentrate on school and meet new people. When it comes to schoolwork, our designated study rooms and computer lounge are perfect substitutes for the library (and residents don’t have to leave home to use them). As for amenities for socializing, we have a clubhouse, game room, and a resort-style pool with a sunbathing deck and grilling stations. We also have recreational amenities, including a top-of-the-line fitness center, a sand volleyball court, and an expansive greenspace that’s suitable for everything from tossing around the football to walking the dog. (Yes, we’re also a pet-friendly community!)

Transfer students have enough to worry about without needing to do advanced calculus just to budget for their housing. That’s why we’ve simplified matters by making sure one monthly payment covers most of what our residents need to live, including a cottage bedroom, Internet and cable services, parking, and access to community amenities. All that’s left is to set up the electric and water utilities and fill up the fridge, and you’re good to go!

Parking is available for free throughout the community. In most cases, residents can find open spaces right outside of their cottages, eliminating long walks through the parking lot. And for bike riders, there’s plenty of room for bike storage outside and inside of the apartments.
