Off-Campus Housing, Tailored to Hokies

Whether you want the convenience of living minutes away from your classes, the privacy of off-campus cottages, or the amenities of an all-inclusive community, The Retreat at Blacksburg is the right choice for you.

Student Focused Environment

We operate with needs of college students in mind. That's why we offer individual leasing options, flexible lease terms, online rent payments, roommate matching and resident employment opportunities.

Individual Leasing Options

Between classes and social activities, you've got a lot on your plate. But with our individual leases, you'll have one less thing to worry about. Individual leasing allows you and your roommates to pay rent separately, so you don't have to worry about roommates not paying their shares.
