The student lifestyle is often busy and arduous. Between attending classes, completing homework assignments, and scrounging for study time, it’s easy for students to become burnt out. We all know maintaining a healthy work-life balance is essential, particularly during those hectic college years. This is why our UGA off campus housing community offers a myriad of facilities that are designed to help students de-stress. Students can relax by our resort-style pool, stay active in our extensive fitness center, or simply stroll around our expansive greenspace to enjoy mother nature and breathe some fresh air. The last thing a parent wants is to hear their student is stressed out — The Retreat’s luxury amenities can help to keep them happy and healthy.
Many apartments use a traditional “by the apartment” housing contract, in which each resident shares the same financial liabilities. At The Retreat on Milledge, we know this arrangement isn’t always ideal and could put a student’s living arrangement at risk if a roommate doesn’t uphold their end of the bargain. To provide parents and students with peace of mind, we use individual housing contracts. With this, students will each sign an individual contract, making them responsible for their bedroom, and only their bedroom. This way, there’s no unnecessary liability imposed upon students or their cosigners.
We know parents worry about their students being away from home and, for some, one of those worries is who they’re rooming with. Students have no idea who they’ll be paired with in dorm rooms, let alone whether or not that person will distract them from their studies. Roommates are often the first friends a student makes in college, and parents will want their students to have someone they can rely on. For these reasons, The Retreat on Milledge offers roommate matching services. If your student is moving to Athens by themselves, our roommate matching services can help assist residents find like-minded, reliable roommates Contact us for additional information.

Attending college is a big commitment, and parents will want assurance that their students have access to all the necessary resources a scholar requires. For this reason, many parents settle on placing their students in on-campus dormitories. What parents don’t always realize is that dorms can be cramped, noisy, and make it difficult for students to work contently, hindering productivity. Our Athens apartments provide premium, student-focused amenities that complement a scholarly lifestyle, making it easy to excel. An academic lounge with group study rooms and private study stations, as well as a 24-hour computer lab for students to complete online coursework and print documents are just a few of the helpful amenities at The Retreat.
