Every one of our cottages is designed with the future in mind, and residents have access to the trendiest updates in construction and student living. Each of our cottages offer private bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, brand new appliances, including a full-size unit washer and dryer set, stainless steel appliances, and more. Sleep soundly knowing that all cottages are built with the latest construction techniques to minimize sound transfer, maximize energy efficiency, and advanced safety features for your peace of mind.
With resort-style amenities throughout our community, residents can lead a well-balanced lifestyle and feel their best every day. Relax and recharge poolside at our resort-style swimming area; enjoy a friendly game of cornhole in our expansive greenspace; or sit back and relax at our resident clubhouse. When it’s time to get back to the books, our academic lounges, private study rooms, and computer labs keep residents from making unnecessary trips to the library.
At The Retreat East, we offer individual housing contracts to all of our residents. Individual contracts mean residents are only responsible for their portion of the monthly installment payment and if a roommate misses a payment or suddenly moves out, the other residents are in no way penalized!
We employ a professional group of management, team members, and maintenance staff at The Retreat East. All members of our team are readily available to answer any questions or provide any support residents may need. If something stops working in your student’s cottage or your student has questions about our community, contact us today and we’ll be happy to help!
Everyone prefers a different style of living arrangements. Whether your student prefers to keep things small with just a few roommates, or would rather have a more social experience with several housemates, we have them covered. With a variety of cottage floor plans available to our residents, students can choose the perfect layout for their needs.
At The Retreat East, we believe that students shouldn’t have to settle for basic, underwhelming housing options. Combining an ideal location just minutes away from campus with deluxe interior features in each cottage, our community redefines what it means to live in off campus housing near UCF. Our on-site amenities are also designed for days when students need to catch up on coursework or require a bit of rest and relaxation before tackling the coming school week.
Are you looking for more control over how you are matched with roommates? Through the RoomSync app, residents are empowered to choose roommates and build a sense of community using lifestyle habits such as cleanliness levels, studying habits, sleep cycles, and more. RoomSync offers an experience that supports a diverse and inclusive matching community through gender-inclusive tools. Furthermore, the app recognizes the importance of living criteria like service and emotional support animals and factors this into the matching process.
Our community is designed with pet-friendly living in mind, and our cottages are some of the largest in the area. We also have plenty of outdoor space to keep pets active and happy. Reach out to our leasing staff to learn more about our pet policy!
