Living at The Retreat at State College has been great so far! The staff is great and the amenities are always clean and available. Five stars for sure!
It’s a retreat what else you want??? Nothing else compares to it plus they have a shuttle Thursday-Saturday to pick you up from downtown when you are too “busy” and the CATA isn’t running anymore. Can that be anymore clutch?
The apartment overall is nice but some things were a little annoying to deal with such as the thermostat acting up, shower not working, and the key not working at first.
The Retreat is the best place to live off campus. There are so many amenities that there is always something to do. The staff is super friendly and helpful.
I love the retreat! Personally enjoy the events that are held, great way to meet your neighbors! The staff is always happy to help with any concern I may have. Would recommend to a friend.
The cottage is awesome, it feels just like home! The clubhouse has great amenities too. The only reason I took off .5 stars is because taking the CATAbus to campus can be annoying sometimes, but it's totally worth it in my opinion.
Definitely the best place to live at in State College. The amenities are great and the houses are spacious for the price you pay! The staff also makes this place worth it. They go out of their way to make your experience here memorable.
The community and staff is very friendly. The location is far from campus, which I was aware of, however the buses around rush hour are difficult to navigate. The homes were also a little dirty upon move in even tho we were promised that things like damaged carpets were replaced annually. Overall a great place to live, the privacy and secuirity is awesome!
I really enjoy living at The Retreat because the staff is very welcoming, friendly, and helpful! There are so many great amenities that truly make it feel like I am on vacation while at school (besides the endless amount of work). I am excited to meet more of my neighbors and make new local friends as time passes. The landscaping always looks great around all the houses, and all the cottages are well maintained.
I love living here! Only downside is the distance from campus. There is bus access that gets you to campus but it does not always run at the most convenient times.
Home away from home feeling. Very nice staff and managers. Love that the gym is open 24/7. The activities like the pool party and taco tuesdays are the best
The houses are clean, maintenance is good, and all the amenities in the clubhouse are nice. I love having my own bedroom and bathroom. The community is generally quiet and nice. The bus system is easy to use.
The retreat is a fantastic living community, they provide many things. The best is the resident clubhouse that has study rooms, and workout and a basketball gym
The Retreat is a great place to live! There are plenty of facilities to use and the staff is friendly and helpful! The only problem I faced was that there was a problem with the Ethernet port in my room and I'm still in the process of having it fixed but the process is too long.
The property and staff are great, but moved into an unfinished house, was promised things when toured that weren’t given until after speaking to multiple managers. Things consistently seem to be broken or breaking. The house it self needs to be kept up with, lots of damaged/dirty cabinets, walls, doors, furniture.
Living here has been the best experience ever. The Retreat has every amenity that I could imagine and the staff is always so helpful with everything.
This is my second year living here and I love The Retreat. It is a great place to live and overall is a really awesome community. The employees are very friendly and will help you with anything.
I really like this neighborhood. It is convenient, green, and pets friendly. The big part of reason why I chose here is I heard the neighborhood is usually quiet, but my neighbors are too noisy especially in the nights of weekends
Everything has been pretty good, wish that my house had been cleaner but so far so good. Everybody is very nice and easy to talk to, i love the neighborhood
I have really enjoyed living here so far. The staff is very friendly and the clubhouse is awesome! Definitely will recommend to friends in the future.
I love living at the Retreat. At my home the mattress is amazing, shower pressure is on point, and all the amenities making living here a treat. The only reason this review is missing a star is because of a maintenance issue. It is a minor issue but still an inconvenience. Fortunately the staff are very attentive and I have only great things to say about them.
Awesome complex. Great staff & great environment. Only a quick bus ride away from campus! The amenities are a huge plus included in your rent every month as well.
The Retreat is a great place to live when everything is kept in good condition and working smoothly. Upon moving in the house was pretty dirty and there were multiple work orders that were needed to be put in. Once those were fixed, the cottage is how it should be and overall a solid living situation. Just frustrating having to deal with it initially.
This place is awesome, I havent been here a full week but it is already my favorite out of all the student living I have been at in the past.
Resort style living at its finest! The clubhouse is like being at a country club. Really cute little cottages, very unique. Lots of parking. Spacious patios and yards . Good roommate matching service.
So far everyone has been very helpful and has made the move in process very easy. The transition to state college from a branch campus can be difficult but it feels easier while living at the retreat.
The Retreat is a great place to live! Having the privacy of your own room while still having the ability to socialize and have fun is wonderful!
Living at the retreat was a very enjoyable experience due to the friendliness of the staff, amenities, and overall chill and relaxed vibes around the property.
Was honestly an amazing 2 years with the Retreat, perfect housing situations and great roommates and events as well. The staff and maintenance were always immensely helpful, and the free food events was a huge plus. Would definitely stay a third year if I didn't graduate.
I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else, the staff is very friendly. The amenities are awesome trash picks up frequently. This is everything I need and more.
The appartment is beautiful, the bed is comfy, having my own bathroom and a laundry machine in the unit makes life a lot more convenient. Having access to the pool, bus pass and close supermarket is sipl awesome! The price is really good as well.
This place seems like the best place to live in State College. All of the employees are so nice and willing to help. All of the things that are provided for the residents are very nice such a safe the food and events.
I haven't moved in yet, but just visiting here made me go home and sign a lease to live here. The amenities that come with this living area are awesome. The community itself is very nice and welcoming. I love it and feel it will be stress free to live here while dealing with the many stresses of school. I look forward to moving in.
I’m a student from penn state university, a psychology major student. My friend invited me to live at Retreat and I really enjoy living at Retret!
My experiences so far at the Retreat in State College has been great. I did not like how we had to pay for august rent a month and a week before move in though.
Great apartment complex, is very new and clean. Also has great extra amenities in the community area. Have not moved in yet so rating could go up.
Super impressed by how friendly all the staff has been this far and really looking forward to living here and seeing what more they have to offer!
Living here is great. Awesome community, great amenities. The common area is a great place to study for finals, either with a group or alone.
The people here are great and the facilities/amenities are the best I have seen in State College. It truly feels like home and I would recommend it to anyone.
Absolutely NOTHING can beat the retreat! The staff, amenities and overall atmosphere is perfect. I couldn't imagine living anywhere else while in school.
As an incoming resident, and having already been associated with the retreat before. It is the best place to live in State College. Not too pricey, and perfect experience.
Although I haven’t lived here yet I am extremely excited to be doing so and solely based on the tour I had I know it’ll be a great experience.
So far my resident experience has been amazing. The retreat has been very helpful and made the process of moving in extremely easy. I look forward to moving in this fall!
I have not moved in yet but I’m so excited to because of all the amenities that The Retreat has available. I’ve heard great things from other friends and I have ton that will be living there next year.
I have not moved in yet but so far the accommodations and convenience of the retreat is unmatched. I move in in a couple months and I could not be more excited
Everyone is kind and welcoming. It feels more like a community rather than just a place to live. I love the amenities and the quality of living.
At my tour of the retreat, before moving in everyone was friendly and welcoming. The community looked very clean, even after game day weekend.
My time at the Retreat has been WONDERFUL! The staff is always so helpful, kind, and available. Being a little farther off of PSU's campus is totally worth the amenities and opportunities that The Retreat has to offer.
Great place to stay. Really happy with the experience. Friendly neighbors and staff. Rent could be a little lower. Need more transparency for utilities.
not bad! could use better quality apartments though, it seems
as though everything that was bought for the house was bought from the dollar store. so fragile and cheap
So far it has been a great experience. The staff is very helpful and I love the place. Wish the location was a little closer to the main campus though.
It’s been amazing living here. You honestly can’t ask for a better place to live. Between the pool, gym and a shuttle bus for the weekends. There is so much to do.
Absolutely amazing facilities and amenities! I love the retreat because it has a great location, fantastic pool, and plenty of things to do.
Good amenities and management. Units are well maintained. Neighborhood grounds are huge. The community rewards program is interesting. Even utilities payments are split amongst housemates so no need to pester people for their share.
I am really excited to live here this fall. I have heard nothing but positive reviews from friends who have lived here/been a part of this community.
I have had an incredible experience so far at The Retreat at State College. I have made plenty of friends here and we enjoy all the amenities this community has to offer.
Hands down the best place to live in State College and The Retreat staff couldn't be any nicer. The amenities are top of the line and Taco Tuesdays never fail to satisfy my hunger.
One of the best places out there! Really wish I could have stayed longer they do so much for their residences. Staff is amazing except for upper management.
I loved living at the retreat, and plan on living there again next year. The people and workers
=were nice. Had some noisy neighbors, but that's college
The retreat has been a great experience. I love the amenities and the food nights. The houses are in great condition. I love having my own bedroom and bathroom.
Great place to live, with great amenities. Staff is friendly. Offer free food in the clubhouse. Spacious furnished apartments, bus stop nearby. All in all, great place to live.
It’s great to live here. The gym is new and hot tub is amazing! There also is sauna in the clubhouse which is my favorite. The only inconvenient thing is that we have to put the recycle garbage in the red bin and it’s too small!
It's great living here, the staff at the clubhouse are very helpful and the conditions of the house we live in are very nice. The amenities at the clubhouse along with the activities the staff have there are also great
Love my apartment bus makes getting to campus easy. Shuttle is really helpful on the weekends. The hot tub is fun as well as the gym is useful.
I have no complaints about the retreat! The staff is simply amazing and each unit is equally amazing! I never want to leave! #retreatlifeforever
I love living at the retreat. The staff is super helpful and always answer any questions I have right away. There are so many amenities to use! The houses are super big and have a lot of space which is super nice!
Ive had a great time living in the retreat. The staff is awesome, they always are available to help you. Cool events are always happening, and a lot of the time there is free food.
Great I like it here thank you everything was perfect good air good water good view good weather wonderful area for student cool place to live
good apartment. club houses has different kind of equipment apply for residents. Like swimming pool, golf game and so on. Also you do not need throw trash by your self
The Retreat was not too bad. I was able to find what I was looking for like the type of rental (bedrooms, bathrooms, SF, etc.), type of area it was located in and if it had amenities. It would be good to have some photos of what it's like on the website. It for sure lives up to the hype.
Overall very satisfied, except for one of my roommate, unavoidably toxic. But nothing towards the Retreat community. I heard about the place from my friend. This is my second semester living at this place.
I enjoy the housi g and what it has to offer, but I do not find our community to be very open and neighborly. I may see people walking from on place to another but we have no reason to talk to eachother or meet. I would like to know who my neighbors are. Also, I would like to see more events put togetherfor our little community.
I love living at The Retreat. It literally has everything you can imagine and the staff are so helpful and accommodating. I have only had great experiences with The Retreat so far!
The retreat was a great experience and very worth the rent. Great if you have a dog or pets. The houses are great and they provide you with a lot of activities at the clubhouse.
Retreat is a great place to live. They have a lot of amenities, a great community and a friendly staff who are always happy to help. I will definitely live at the retreat till I graduate.
Living at the retreat has been great for me this year. I enjoy having a gym on site as well as the free food. The shuttle service is great to have on the weekends as well.
it’s okay but roommates are loud as shit. afraid we’re going to get a second or later third noise violation and i can’t afford that at all because rent is so high.
Living hear makes you feel like you’re living in a vacation rental that’s both super fun and cozy at the same time. Absolutely love the Retreat fam and everything about it!
Love the community. The club house is unreal always a friendly face and great spot to study or just relax. The pool is awesome in the summer.
Living here is great, there's a clubhouse with so many awesome amenities. My favorite thing about the clubhouse is the hot tub. I also love to have my own space and a big room.
Dish washer barely works, would be nice if that were to actually clean the dishes, would also be nice if the hot tub was open till like 1:00 am
Incredible. Comfortable bedrooms. Feels like home every time I get there. when I leave for a break I always look fordward to getting back home
Awesome place to live so much included. The bus is never an issue pretty much always on time and doesn’t cost extra. Plenty of parking when I have guests and the house is great, plenty of room.
Loving this place and the space it has. It’s definitely what you need when you own a dog because I dont know what I would do without tthis yard space.
Living at the Retreat has given me so many great experiences. I've met countless amazing people (including the staff) and I take advantage of all the great amenities daily.
Retreat is very good to living.I’m very Hornered as being a resident here.It has a very good environment.But the only thing need to fix is the air condition.
I have absolutely no complaints about living in the retreat! Everything about this place from the employees, to the units themselves, to the clubhouse and all it's amenities is simply perfect! Retreat Family Forever.
The retreat is the best place to live. I recommend it to everyone. I love my house and my room with my own bathroom nad balcony. I also love the clubhouse.
I love living here. Renewed my lease. Everything is so nice the clubhouse the pool and the apartments. Really excited to continue to live here.
The retreat is it’s own utopia.If you like space and class, this is the place to live. Let me emphasize spacious, you will not have this much room for yourself anywhere else.
The retreat is a great community to live in and provides its residents with the opportunity to get a relaxed residential experience to coincide with the stressful life a student faces. However, the lack of rules regarding smoking allow individuals to litter and smoke as they please which causes issues within the community. Could be fixed but otherwise is a great experience.
Great staff and value for the monthly rent! Maintenance was always quick and professional with any needs and the office staff is very accommodating .
The system used to choose roommates seems to not be updated, but I still enjoy my roommates none the less. The amenities offered here and very nice and convenient.
It is a great community vibe. The clubhouse is clean and welcoming. I like that there are so many dogs around. My only complaint is the internet quality is not great.
I love the homey feel of the community. It really feels like we all know each other. The events that the staff put on really help this because you get to get out and meet your neighbors often.
Been exceptional to love here. Really love the location and amneties that are offered here. The people who live here are really nice and you can enjoy everything with friends.
I love living here because of how nice the houses are and all the amenities that are included with the house like the clubhouse, pool and hot tub. The staff is also very friendly and helpful
I like the living conditions and the space itself. also how close it is to campus without being downtown. The staff is really nice and helpful and maintenance is fast in responding to any problems you might have.
Overall, resident experience has been great. I love all the commodities the retreat provides to us and also how friendly all their employees are. The only negative I have is the gym. I would love if you guys could add a couple more machines in there.
Its a great place to live, Has a lot to offer. The staff is very helpful and kind. The night shuttle is the best part about living here I wish it ran more. The workers and management team goes out of there way to make sure your stay is more enjoyable.
I really enjoy living at the retreat. My roomates are great and the facilities are impeccable. The retreat is the pinnacle of off-campus housing!
I love the retreat. They are so helpful and always accommodating. My parents are so happy that I chose to live here, as it is so safe and clean.
It's a really nice community and everyone's really nice and friendly. If your a party type of person this may not be the place to live because some parties don't make it past 12 because of security.
Bus times would be better if they were spread out more. I find that they are all bunched together (R,RC) during the day and if you miss your bus you
Have to wait another 20-30 minutes for the next bus.
We had a few initial complaints about the condition of our apartment, but most of these problems have since been resolved. The staff is very responsive and friendly
Its nice it actually pretty nice. Security is a pain actually its pretty annoying. The staff is good actually their pretty great. The refrigerator is big actually its pretty huge.
I’ve had a good time until now living at the retreat. The community there is lovely and I like how everyone can get together during the weekends and just chill by the hot tub or the clubhouse in general. A bit too expensive though.
I love the community so much it is like a giant family. I love the gym and how accessible it is and the sauna is the best after a long day of classes. I would not want to live anywhere else!
The experience at the retreat has been really great. The pool parties are really fun and it’s a great way for me to meet new people around the community.
The Retreat at State College is a wonderful place to live. All office representatives are welcoming and friendly, and they are always ready to help with anything you may need. I definitely recommend anyone looking for a place to live to live at the Retreat!
the house condition is great and the staff is pretty nice, every time we have a problem there and submit a request, there is always a quick response.
but the music coming from the neighborhood at midnight really gives us headache
I like the community a lot and the staffs are very friendly. However, I hope there could be more social events that we could meet others in our community.
It’s been great!!! I love this place and all the people who live here! the only thing that would make the retreat take the cake, is if it were closer to downtown!
Really good living area.Nice place and nice people. Bus routes stop is right beside the living area. Pools and gym are nicely opened to all residents. I like this place
Living here is great, but my friend just got towed for parking in front of our apartment when no one ever parks there and there is ample parking, but only 6 spaces for visitor parking. Makes no sense to me, especially because we pay so much to live here.
I love it here. The main reason my buddies and I came was for the single beds but all the amenities and community culture make it well worth the money.
Great place and located so close to campus. Nothing to complain about really. Staff are friendly always, and I love the fitness center and indoor basketball court.
Staying at the retreat has been a wonderful experience so far. I am a new transfer student from penn state Lehigh valley so I am still getting used to the transition but I do have to say that staying at the retreat has made it a little easier making things like getting a bus pass less stressful.
the retreat is a great place to live with a bunch of stuff to do, friendly staff, on site gym, pool and hot tub, private rooms with private bathrooms. will for sure renew my lease
I love living here and that the retreat makes sure we’re happy and comfortable. Not many places go above and beyond like the retreat does and that’s why it has such a stellar reputation.
I love living at the retreat. It seems their is something new each week regarding food; whether it's burgers, waffles, or hotdogs, I'm glad to see the retreat put a big emphasis on resident satisfaction. The amenities are great too. I've never had a problem with wifi, gym capacity, or going to the club for work. My one complaint/recommendation is about the individual work rooms in the clubhouse. I'm sure many people love working in those and I have a hard time getting a room to myself. Maybe if there was an online app or schedule so people could indicate when they will in the rooms. That is my one small complains and it really isn't too big of a deal. My stay here has been wonderful and I thank the retreat staff for their hard work.
Living at the retreat has been one of the best parts of my senior year. The benefits of having the clubhouse are awesome and there is always something going on here. Andy is the best driver in state college and has saved me a lot of money l.
I chose to live at the retreat to get an escape from all the chaos of downtown, and it simply exceeded all my expectations. It’s so calm, the people are great, the amenities are awesome. 10/10
The retreat is seriously the best place to live. The amenities are amazing as are the people the work here. Such a friendly and fun environment.
Been amazing living here so far!! All the amenities are amazing from the cottages to the clubhouse and all the other benefits that come with being a resident, I am so happy i choose The Retreat! I love calling this place home!!
Overall I have really liked living at the retreat because having my own room and tons of activities/recreational spaces is a huge plus. Also the staff is friendly (if not funny too) which makes me feel welcome and like I'm at home. They are also super responsive to maintenance and other issues. The only thing I was concerned about was the fact that the apartment hasn't been very well cleaned these past two times that I've moved in.
The retreat is an amazing place to live! They always are ready to help and always are so nice! Also the amenities here are amazing because there is so much to do!
Best place to live hands down. It is like being on vacation all year while at school. Never want to leave. The 24 hour gym and basketball court are so much fun.
My residence experience so far has been amazing. Really appreciate everything that the retreat does to ensure we are living comfortably. Much love
everyone is so nice and I have a lot of needs that have to be dealt with concerning my cottage and the staff is always on it . close to campus and nice
I love the retreat. Everyone is super friendly and the staff makes sure to keep the premises as clean as possible while still creating a friendly learning and living community among residents.
The houses are great, security is chill, the clubhouse is amazing, and staff is very friendly. I just wish that maintenance was more helpful.
I've lived here for almost 3 years now and The Retreat is the BEST place to live in state college! You get to have your own bedroom and bathroom, with a gorgeous kitchen and spacious living room. The events are amazing, the pool parties are so fun. The staff has always been really helpful in the past any time I had a complaint (which was rare) they immediately got it fixed. The gym just got renovated so that's really nice to see they are always making improvements. Yes it's a little pricey but it's worth it in my opinion.
The retreat has very friendly customer service and made it very easy to find an apartment. They were able to answer all of my questions and were always friendly.
I love living at the Retreat! Everyone is so friendly and it's great living in a community and meeting new neighbors! I couldn't imagine living anywhere else for my last college years!
Awesome amenities, awesome people! The pool is awesome, and so is the entire community center. I will definitely recommend the Retreat to all of my friends at Penn State
for the most part everthing has been great; but 2 things i dont like but i understand completly is 1 is thaht if i have a group of friends living in the same type of housing to be put close bye and second the fact is that i come outside the US and i move in the 18 which is a little to late
The Retreat is an amazing place to live. I love the community atmosphere, it really feels like home. It's so close and easy to go downtown, but also have the relaxing vibe that the retreat offers. It's really the best of both worlds!
I love the Retreat! It has been the best living experience of my life thus far! I wouldn't choose to live anywhere else! I would 10/10 recommend to a friend.
Wouldn’t want to live anywhere else! I have lived here for almost two years and will be sad to leave. I love the Retreat and all that it has to offer.
Please rate & review your apartment community. How many stars? (140 character minimum). 88 characters remaining to reach your 140 minimum requirement.
When I move in, the house wasn't cleaned and there were many damages that still haven't fixed till now. Aside of initial housing conditions, staffs are nice, my bedroom is comfortable and environment is very good.
I highly enjoy living here. The staff and maintenance are very friendly. My neighbors are respectful and I always feel safe here. The amenities are great for hosting also.
Amazing complex. Love the amenities, apartment rooms, and staff. Could use some extra cleaning before we arrived. But overall amazing experience. I will be living here the rest of college.
It is a very clean and desirable place to live for a school year. The amenities including the weight room, pool, and hot tub. Overall I would highly recommend.
I have lived at The Retreat for 7 months now and I couldn't be happier! Everyone who works there is incredibly nice and accommodating, the houses are spacious and comfortable, and the roommate matching system has introduced me to some of my best friends. I highly recommend it if you're looking for a great place to live!
Amazing community, super friendly and always working with you to figure all needs out. When we put maintenance requests in for our apartment, it is reviewed and usually fixed within one day.
Great college living experience! The Retreat staff does everything in their power to make sure the residents are living happily and comfortably!
Really nice place to live in state college!! Staff is great and helpful, maintenance people are always on top of any problems and the neighbors are nice too.
The Retreat at State College is an amazing place to live. Staff is amazing and extremely helpful. The gym and basketball court are great to use to unwind along with the sauna and hot tub that open year round!
Great place to live! My only complaint would be the selection of buses that stop at the bus stop out front and their availability. For example, the RP doesn’t start till 2-something.
I love it here. Everything so far has been great and everyone is very friendly. Getting packages from the clubhouse is easy and the staff are very helpful. All of the amenities are great and I couldn't picture myself living anywhere else.
Living is very decent. you get your own room and bathroom. if you get nice roommates you can obviously hang with them. A pretty chill area but somewhat far from campus.
Awesome place. i would definitely say is one of the best housing options in state college (if not the best). the only cons i have had in 2 years is with party guidelines. Because lately even though you follow the rules and report your party it still gets shut down without reason in a really authoritarian way.

Living at the Retreat State College has been an amazing experience. The staff, along with maintenance, are always so helpful and polite. I would recommend living here to everyone.
It’s been an amazing experience here at The Retreat! I felt welcomed here as soon as I stepped foot on the property. My roommates are amazing and the staff is unbelievable! Love y’all so much! (:
The service here in the retreat is very superior to any other amenity I have exprienced. Staff is very friendly and always eager to help. Whenever I have had problems requiring maintenance my isssues have been solved in a timely manner. I would 100% recommend the retreat to a friend or fellow student
I love living at the retreat. The best part is the overall experience, including the beautiful cottage and luxurious amenities. The club house is always welcoming and relaxing to be in. The maintenance and other staff members are awesome!!!
The retreat is such an amazing place to live. I really don’t even have to leave to go any where because no it has everything I need. Gym, hot tub, sauna, hair salon, tanning, anything I could possibly need.
thank you for the retreat, i liked everything in the first semester and i will continue this semester too, i hope it will be a great againn.
I've had nothing but an amazing experience while living here. My house and roommates are amazing and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. The Retreat is truly my home away from home.
The apartment was very nice and clean when I got it. The amenities were so good but the gem wasn't the best. Community was so good. These are some extra characters to finish the 140 min.
The retreat is a great off campus housing options. The numerous amenities make it worth living so far from downtown and campus. However, it is pretty pricy which is frustrating.
I have been living at the Retreat for a year now and I thinks it is the best place to live in State College. This place has everything you need and the pool and the hot tub are a bonus.
The community is amazing and always willing to help out. Got wonderful amenities and caring staff as well.
One star less because of my roommates.
The Retreat at State College is my third place of residence in State College and it is by far my favorite. Everything here is beautiful and spacious. All members of the staff are beyond friendly. There is simply nowhere I'd rather be staying, which is why I renewed my lease. Keep up the phenomenal work!
I love everything. It's nice having your own bedroom and bathroom just hate the commute to campus. The service and employees are beyond nice and willing to help.
Since live here I have found that it is a really nice place to live. The staff they have here are very helpful and very nice. The club house is always kept very clean and available.
I absolutely love living at the Retreat. It has been a wonderful experience. It is so nice to come home to an actual house at the end of the day, have my own room, bathroom, and walk-in closet. The community has also been great! Everyone is very friendly and interacts often with each other. I am so happy I chose to live here.
Best place to live in State College!
Love how everyone has their own bathroom. Also great events held by the staff of the retreat. Really friendly staff.
The retreat is a great complex. The apartments are nicer than any others that I’ve seen in state college. They really take care of their residents and make sure everyone’s happy.
The retreat is awesome. Pool, basketball court, hot tub, what more could you need. Best place ever but could you add higher weighted dumbells in the gym plz
Of all of the places I have lived in State College, the Retreat is definitely my favorite. Maintenance is always on time and willing to help with issues, the Clubhouse is super accessible and nice to go to when I don't have time to go to the library, and the neighborhood is always clean. Definitely will be living here again.
I love being able to feel like I am at home here. Everyone is so friendly and coming home to an actual house instead of an apartment. The clubhouse is perfect too.
Brilliant, always something to do and friendly faces. Feels like home away from home. Wouldnt choose anywhere else to live in state college.
Everything is good except sometimes the trash collection, the occasional nightmare roommate, and the noise from parties happening in houses here.
I love the apartment community. Having a new puppy here makes it so much easier for him to live and grow. The clubhouse is always so clean and the free coffee is the best.
The Retreat has completely changed my life. I love that my roommates and I all have things in common and we get to use all of the amenities.
Roommate matching is so beneficial. I love my roommates and the community. Amenities are also a great addition and living here is worth every penny.
Choosing to live at The Retreat was one of the best decisions I've made so far during my time here at Penn State. The available utilities make the living experience feel super luxurious. All of the staff are super friendly and willing to answer any questions that residents have, and they are quick to address any concerns! After living here for a semester, I'm afraid I'll never want to leave since it's so nice!
Living at The Retreat at State College has been the best part of my college residence experience by far! I would renew my lease if I weren't a senior!
Its been great, I love having my own room and bathroom. I really take advantage of the free printing and the computer lab at the club house. Its perfect for studying and not very crowded.
Great apartment, great roommates, great amenities and overall great place to live at. Only downside is the price can be a bit much for a college student but compared to downtown its way better.
The few months I have lived here has been an excellent experience. The amenities are outstanding and my apartment has been beyond great. I have been super happy and am renewing.
Apart from the minor noise and it's location away from campus, it's a good place to live. Areas to improve could be the addition of bus stops inside retreat
Friendly environment and pet-friendly! I love being able to take my dog outside to play with the neighbors! Also the events and pool parties in the summer are fantastic!
This is my second year living in the retreat, and the experience is still very good as last year. I noticed the road in the retreat was renewed few weeks ago, which i think is good for enhancing the whole environment.
It’s one of the best apartment communities I’ve come across. It’s quiet but there’s always something to do. Everyone is super friendly all the time and very helpful.
On Monday, she killed herself, leaving behind a note that talked about her inability to cope with her studies and I am a big deal with the same time as a result of the following .
Love The Retreat!! The wonderful staff make living here feel like home! The amazing amenities are hands down the best around State College!!
Good residents home with great services and very friendly staffs. In addition, the amenities are good too. I love the pool party as well. Happy with everything
The Retreat is amazing! Best management I'm State College. Leagues better than ARPM and whoever owns the failing Park. You get your monies with living here!
The location of the retreat at state college is very nice. It's very close to campus and has a very nice environment. Nice floor plans and good living conditions.
I like the house, the neighborhood, and the complex itself. It's just that a lot of times my neighbors are very noisy, they play very loud music at night and it annoys me.
Its hard to even list all of the perks that go along with living at the retreat! On top of the abundance of things to do to occupy your time, they have the best community on campus. My neighbors are absolutely fantastic and the staff is so helful and nice.
Nice community with lots of things to do like at the club house with the gym and swimming pool or sauna and all in all living in the retreat is relaxing.
The Retreat is the best place to live in State College. I've been living here for over a year and it has been nothing but wonderful. All the awesome amenities, the BEST coffee machine ever, pasta night etc have made this an amazing experience. Sarah and the staff have been so accommodating and will do anything to make your life easier. And the maintenance guys are the best! Always super quick to fix the problems and are super friendly! I will always recommend The Retreat to anyone who is moving to State College. Thanks for such a great time!
I feel like The Retreat is a great place to live. Even though you're a little further away from campus, the amenities and space make up for that so easily! Really relaxed environment
The Retreat is very nice and clean. The RA's are very nice and very helpful. There's a lot of things you can do over the weekend, like you could go swimming or play basketball with your friends.
It’s nice. Maintence is good but house wasn’t fully clean when they gave it. I personally am still struggling with pests and bees that have been in my room since day one and no one seems to be fixing the problem after multiple complaints. Otherwise living space is good.
great place to live in state college. Best community. Best facilities. And of course great house that has everything I need to live in state college
The staff is really friendly and helpful. Anything you need, they will go out of their way to get done. The apartments are great and very luxurious, overall a great place to live
Love the staff here at the Retreat. Always friendly, helpful and willing to go the extra mile for their residents. The community events offered is what makes this place stand out as one of the best in state college.
I find living in The Retreat to be so much better than I could imagine! I am amazed with every thing this community offers it's residents and other people.
The Retreat is by far one of the best places to live in State College. Although I have only officially lived here for about 2 months, I can without a doubt say that I have enjoyed every minute of it. From the beauty of the apartments to the luxury of the clubhouse, to the fun activities, it is an overall amazing experience.
The retreat apartment complex is a very nice and new place to live. The only downside to living here is that it's far from campus and away from all of the action.
Everything in the Retreat is really perfect, the service, the maintenance, etc. One thing, though, that I would like to be fixed is the grass maintenance, which is really sloppy. In addition to that, the water heaters aren't to the capacity of the houses, so the hot water is very limited.
The retreat is one of the best apartment communities I have ever seen at any college campus, and they also have the most accommodating staff I have experienced.
It has been very pleasant to live here so far. Everything has been nice and when we have had problems you come to fix it immideatelly. The segurity is a bit to strict with the music and parties but other than that its been awesome
Staff is great! Residents are ALL so friendly and welcoming! Maintenance is very quick and reliable! I love how the Retreat is pet friendly, all of the dogs have been very well behaved. The Retreat is very clean and safe environment.
Before moving, I had been here a few times to visit friends so I thought I knew what to expect. Now that I am here, it is so much better than what I expected. The staff is so nice and friendly. All the amenities are kept clean and up to date. Everyone that lives here is very friendly. I love the fact that dogs are allowed and so many people have them! It is so nice and even relaxing to see people walking their dogs around. Without a doubt this is the best place students can live at
The Retreat has by far been my favorite college housing I've experienced so far! Everyone is so friendly, the houses are in great shape and truly feel like home, and all the amenities are a huge bonus. The bus is super easy to work with and is only a short ride to campus as well.
Has been good so far. Would prefer if we had more options for paying our bills, for a case where roommates are divided between using simple bills and paying directly to the utilities company, because due to there being no middle ground option and not wanting to inconvenience roommates, residents are basically forced to use simple bills.
Best place I lived at college. The houses are very modern and clean. The amenedities make you feel like you are at a resort. The staff is ado very nice
I love this community so much. The jacuzzi is my favorite spot. The amenities are so accommodating and continue to provide the best service I've ever received as an undergrad.
Really nice community. Excellent club house with the gym, swimming pool, and the hot tub. The stuff is really nice and always ready to help.
I really enjoy living at the Retreat. It is so nice and at this point feels like home. I am very excited to live here for the third year next year.
The retreat is an amazing place to live. From the day I moved in, I was hooked. The staff members are all extremely nice and helpful. In addition to that, the housing is just incredible. Nicest place I’ve ever lived in.
Pretty good place to live. The pool is very nice and everyone there is also nice. Love the clubhouse, where we can study and all that. It really makes a difference
Doing well, need to learn more about the rewards before i can truly say. First impression is great and the site is put together well and easy to understand as well as navigate.
It is a great place to live. I fell in love with the place immediately and I love that it is a dog friendly community. I can not wait to move in and start my year!
Love it just wish prices didn't keep rising. Aside from that I love the amenities and everything that the retreat offers tô it's residents. Love the food too
Very nice clubhouse and I love the feeling of a united community. Love the factthere are so many buses to come pick us up and drop us off. Also love the shuttle service
I think this is a great way to earn reward points. I'm not sure exactly what this is for but I found it through my new living establishment next year. If this works that's amazing.
You guys are doing amazing , love the place, love the community , love what you guys have built here and how much you care , I give it 10/10
My experience so far has been great. The living conditions are extremely comfortable and the community is safe and friendly. The facilities are always clean and ready for use.
The community is great as a whole. The location is good not being to far from campus. The amenities that are provided are great. The Retreat is definitely worth it.
So far the retreat has been really good. The hot tub is amazing and the new coffee machine is awesome. The staff is really friendly and very helpful.
Roommate matching did not go as well as expected. Preferences on the matching card we're clearly not taken into consideration. As a result, living conditions are not ideal and problematic at times due to conflicts of interest. Highly unsatisfied with the roommates I was paired with.
So far the Retreat has been outstanding. I was a little nervous at first with bus transportation to classes every day, but it is so easy! This place is beautiful and clean and I never want to leave.
I love the retreat. I love everything from the complimentary coffee in the clubhouse all the way to the convenient way to dispose of trash. The house is really comfortable and I have been loving it so far!
You guys are doing great. This is a great program. I think it's awesome to give out rewards. I gave you guys a five star review for this program.
You are doing pretty good. The way you are handling the events is impressive. The club house is just like a resort. keep up the good work!!!
Everything looks so cool in here and my roommates and i have already enjoyed two weeks here. We hope that the next 12 months would be nice and wonderful.
The staff is awesome, only bad thing my house was not really clean when I moved in but I brought it to their attention and immediately fixed! Other than that I love my experience here and am likely to renew
BEST placed I've lived my whole college career, I love it here! The rooms are spacious and homey, the amenities are amazing, and my room mate matching was perfect.
Being at The Retreat has been a blast! Everyone is genuinely nice and willing to help. I love my house and all the amenities is has to offer.
I absolutely love The Retreat! The staff is very helpful and they go out of their way for the residents! They have the best environment and always something to do here!
I love living here so far and it has been a great experience. I love all of the amenities and all the access we have. It is also really convenient to be able to have the computer lab and study room right here.
I love everything here! The facilities are clean and all the staff are so friendly. Also, I love the fact that there are always dogs running around; it makes me happy.
Awesome so far! I just moved in and I am very happy with the facilities! I am looking forward to a great year at the Retreat! I can't wait for the semester to get going!
Everyone I have been in contact with has been very helpful with preparing me for my move in date. I enjoy the prompt communication and friendly reminders very much. Looking forward to moving in!
You are doing great! I love the retreat. I enjoy the atmosphere that retreat at state college puts out and the ease of the website and various apps.
The retreat is nice, but a little too noisy. The houses are made too cheaply, such that all you have to do is whisper to talk to something through the walls. This also means that heat in the winter escapes the house very easily, which can be costly. All the appliances are nice and the room carpets are nice. The pool...gym...basketball court...sauna....and volley ball courts are all very nice bonuses. Lastly the internet can be pretty bipolar at times. It's usually good and stable about 5/6 days of the week, but on that one day where it's having a bad day it's really awful. Connection cuts in and out every 10 minutes. If the houses were built better and the community were quiter, I would give 5 stars.
I still have not moved in yet, but only from receiving emails frequently I feel like The Retreats care much about their residents and happy to help them.
Great! I lived at The Retreat over last summer and felt super comfortable and included. The staff is always willing and wanting to help and even remembers me as a resident. I haven't lived there full time yet, but I am super excited to start that experience because of how welcoming everyone is.
It's great. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere is nice. There are also a lot of things to do right at the Retreat so I don't have to constantly take a bus into town to do things.
new resident at retreat. looking forward to a new experience for the annual year. cool offers and to the residents. The retreat at state college
Beautiful atmosphere and close to campus. Plus the amount of amenities that are offered to you are incredible! Everything is well maintained!
So far my experience at The Retreat at State College has been nothing but the best! I have yet to move in but they have made me more excited than ever to become a resident. From fun community perks to invitations to events even as "future guests", I can tell great things will continue coming even once I'm moved in!
Haven't lived there yet but as far as communicating with The Retreat and trying to get everything set up they've done a great job with that!
Excellent communication about what we need to do to move in and did excellent at getting us excited to move in with the arts fest party! Can't wait to meet all my neighbors!
Amazing experience so far! Very helpful and beautiful place! Wouldn't want to live anywhere else. Everything they have here is so nice and would recommend everyone to stay here!
It is really awesome place with everything.
I do not really need to go out for other thinga cu they got everything in club house. One problem is expensive
They give lot of reminders about moving in and deadlines, so that's great. Great step by step instructions about everything getting set up before move in.
It is very beautiful and probably one of the best places to live at State College. However, it is fairly expensive to live here probably because of everything they offer.
I really like how engaged the staff is to the community. I like feeling that I am not just paying rent, but that I am also part of the events activities and reviews of the retreat
Great and easy set up! My roommate referred me to live here and I'm very excited to start my senior year living at the retreat! Especially chillen by the pool.
They have been very helpful with all of my questions regarding rent and move in. When I had a problem with the people they put me with they quickly moved me to another house.
Wonderful, I haven't moved in yet but I already love it! I am very excited to move into my new home at the retreat. It looks beautiful! I also am excited for all the events you guys do so that I have the opportunity to meet new people.
So far i think that you guys are doing a great job informing us of what we need to do before we move in. One thing that i didnt like was that you guys told us the day before rent was due that it was due.
The retreat is a beautiful living experience. Amazing neighborhood surrounded by a wide variety of amazing people. Always something to do here!
I've only visited The Retreat a handful of times but each time I love it more and more. There are so many benefits (pool, gym, spa, ect.) to living at The Retreat and such a strong sense of community among its residents.
At first I was not a huge fan, to be honest. Move in was a bit stressful, since I was not assigned to the room I had selected.
Setting up the renter's insurance is frustrating, because each year it seems that I get an email that mine is incorrect.
I love the weekend shuttle, gym, and pool area.
The new rules regarding smoking following the fire at the Park are too extreme. People should be permitted to smoke on their own porch.
Maintenance staff is great.
My experience so far has been great. My roommates are great and we love enjoying the many ammentities at the retreat as often as we can. Looking forward to another great year!
-Should have more considered maintenance that informs when they come to do repairs and knock before walking in.
-conider finding more efficent ways to encourage residents to recycle or dispose of trash.
Best place to live at State College by far!! Everyone who works here is extremely helpful and kind to all of the residents. They care about those living at the Retreat.
I have lived at the retreat for a year now. I can proudly say that the environment here is amazing. A great community along with excellent maintenance!
The Retreat is a great place to live! the amenities are useful and fun, the management is great. the only thing is make sure you know who you are moving in with, but that really goes for any student housing.
I love living at The Retreat! Best place in State College, everyone is so friendly and the staff is extremely helpful when residents have questions or concerns
I love The Retreat! Living here has been one of the best experiences while in college. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. The office staff are the best - they showed excellent service even before I decided to lease with them.
Awesome experience living here definitely the best place to live in in State College. Cottages are super cool and well furnished, staff is super friendly and the clubhouse is just amazing.
Living at The Retreat is definitely a fun experience, especially during the first few weeks when it feels like Spring Break. The amenities are great and the staff cares about the quality of life here.
I love this place, especially the staff, they're super awesome and friendly and fun 😉👌. I use indoor basketball court for a plethora of activities as well
I couldn't be happier with my experience living at the retreat. I can honestly say that I don't think I can enjoy living anywhere else after such a positive experience here.
Love the retreat and love being able to have pets and friends. The management is wonderful and they always have a ton of events. The gym and clubhouse/pool area are always super clean and always accessible
I have never had a complaint about The Retreat! It really is the best place to live in state college. There simply is no other place like it!
I really like living at the retreat. It is a fun experience, the amenities are awesome. My favorite amenity is the golf simulator. I totally recommend people to live here.
Leaving here is the best! The community is aemwesome and friendly! The staff will help you with anything you need! It's my third year and I'm staying for the forth!
The ammenities are very nice. Close to PSU campus and very close to restaurants and grocery store. Always have your own room and bathroom and the cottages are very nice.
Great experience!! and great people to work with!! :) With everything from the pool and amenities, to the great community we have here you never get bored.
Best amenities in state college! Love having racquetball courts, a gym, and a pool at such east access. It's impossible to get bored at the retreat. Also the salon is amazing.
The retreat is an amazing place to live in college. It is both a great social environment and a great place to sit down and study as well when needed
I absolutely love everything here. There is nothing bad about living here and I really regret not living here last year as well. The staff, maintanence, and even residents living here are incredibly friendly and helpful.
It is very nice, i like how friendly everyone is and the perks of living here are so nice. I love using the sauna and the gym each and every day.
Loved every second of my time here at the Retreat! Every time i describe this place i always use the same word and that word is sanctuary! I always feel at home here!
The staff is very accommodating and the maintenance team is very fast and helpful. whenever you put in a request they come within that same day or the next to fix any problems.
Living at the Retreat State College is an amazing experience. I love the sense of community and all of the amenities. The staff at the Retreat are always friendly and always do their best to meet your needs. I love the pet friendly aspect and the unique cottages make the sense of community even more apparent. I've said it before and I'll say it again, I love living at the Retreat State College!
Very good very good excellent good yes no yes looks amazing you guys suck i will not write a review because its so boring hi bye yea no bruh this sucks
The Retreat has been great thus far. The apartments are nice and the transportation makes the commute very short to getting to class. It's also nice to have free parking with your home.
So far so good. Although I usually miss the event that are held for residents, I do appreciate them because it shows that the staff have a certain level of interest toward us.
A great place to live in, the people here are always looking to help you out and it certainly makes you feel at home and there are so many thing to so
I have loved living at the retreat the past two years, I am going to miss it when I graduate! It is definitely the nicest place to live in state college.
The experience I'm having here at The Retreat at State College is great, so far I haven't encountered any issues or any oroblems. Thank you!
The retreats at state college is an amazing place to live, the community is so nice! The houses are comfortable living spaces! I like all the activities the community holds weekly
I've lived here at the retreat for 3 years, and there is no better place in State College to live! The amenities are top of the line and blow any of the other local competitors out of the water. The staff is always available to talk to and will bend over backwards for their residents. The pool parties, basketball tournaments, ton's of free food regularly, and other community events bring this place together like your own college neighborhood....Prepare to meet lots of friends!
I absolutely love living in this community. Sarah and Jerrilynn make sure that every resident is content and having a great experience. Couldn't ask for anything more!
Awesome! The retreat has been great, and a very friendly place to live. I enjoy going to the club house for coffee in the morning, and being welcomed by an always happy staff.
Overall the place is great. There have been some issues with roommates my first year. This year when I can back there were some big issuea at first, I was match with a person that had a cat when I said I didn't want to live with a pet. He moved in the spring and over the summer he let it move around free, it damaged the living room and he won't not clean up after it. He was moved to another apartment. Management here needs work, they are not able to help and fix problems properly. They need better training.
Absolutely amazing place to live, maintenance is always working hard to make sure everything is working and they are super quick. All of the staff are extremely nice and I have had no problems living here!
I love living here. When I tell all my friends I live here, they are dying to come visit all the time because they know how fun it is. The amenities are amazing. I have met friends of a lifetime here.
The apartments are in great shape, and the maintenance staff is always willing to help! They come whenever we submit a request, and go out of their way to explain what was wrong.
doing really well, very satisfied with the service that the office gives. answers and takes care of problems very quickly and easily. also enjoy all of the food they give
I really enjoy all the amenities that The Retreat offers. Also, whenever we have a problem on our house maintenance is pretty quick about fixing the problem. The cottages are nice and updated compared to other apartments. Having my own bedroom and bathroom is a plus.
Everything is pretty good, the only problem right now is the snow and ice on the side walks. Additionally, a bar for deadlifts in the gym would be ideal
Maintenance gets done in a reasonable time. Love the free food days. Clean and useful club house. Overall it is nice to live here and very good job!
Super friendly and helpful. Always feel like Iive and am interacting with a community not just another real estate office. They were so helpful to get me settled in when I started subleasing with them and whenever I have a concern they are very prompt about resolving it
Absolutely beautiful place! 10/10 would live here again! The residents are friendly and the employees are caring and willing to do anything for you!
Whether you want the convenience of living minutes away from your classes, the privacy of off-campus apartments, or the amenities of an inclusive community, The Retreat at State College is the right choice for you.
The Retreat is awesome. The complex in nice and clean and the clubhouse often has events for the residents free of charge. The trash pickup is fabulous, nothing piles up! The only reason I took half a star off is that they do not give package e-mails when you have things in the office, so unless you know something is comming it can be difficult to pick things up.
I love it here! There's a homey environment and the staff is always friendly and helpful. A gym, computer lounge, pool and hot tub, you can't get better than that. The rent is kind of pricey for college kids but I believe it is worth it for what you get here. So glad I chose to live here :)
best student housing in state college! nice service at front desk and maintenance is in time. trash keeping is very good. safe and clean. and there are a lot of fun activities in the clubhouse. very good living environment!
Love living here! Everyone here is always happy. The staff is great. It's nice having a gym, weight room, pool and hot tub only 50 feet away from my house!
I have lived at The Retreat now for two years and have loved every moment. It allows for a comfortable living environment with a large amount of amenities.
Hands down the best community in all of State College. Staff is great living arrangements are the best. I am genuinely sad to leave after graduation :(
The Retreat perks are awesome (pool, hot tub, tanning, golf simulator, gym, basketball court, sauna, etc.) and the staff is super friendly and helpful! And the free food is HUGE :-)
Nicest housing in State College! The staff is so friendly and always willing to help with anything I need. There's no place I'd rather live!
I am great thank you very much for asking very kind. I wonder why of all the numbers that could be picked_you_went-with-140-like this is twitter

I think it's great at The Retreat, there's a huge amount of amenities and being provided with free food sometimes is awesome. Pool parties are the best events of the year.
My experience at The Retreat has been great, great amenities, great events and great staff. No major complaints.m but it would be nice if we had an indoor soccer court and people could stay in the pool area after midnight.
Great its nice and you guys do a good job, just need to shuffle the snow. What else, its good place to stay. This place is nice and quite so I can do my homework
My experience here at the retreat has been great! I lived somewhere else previously, and it was terrible compare to the retreat. The service the staff here gives is awesome! They truly make this place feel like home.
Management is good and is almost always available when help is needed. Maintenance is quick to respond with problems and get the fixed quickly.
The retreat experience has been awesome. The management is great. The staff is wonderful and polite. The clubhouse is amazing. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else in state college.

The Community is very convenient for residents. Clubhouse basically had everything a college student may need. There are always parking spaces available!
Love the retreat. Best place to live at in SC in my opinion. You guys got a sauna, a gym, a basketball court, and every now and then give out free food.
