Information for Parents
Bard Townhouses is professionally managed by Property Management, Inc. PMI offers over 50 years of experience working with student renters and residents. As part of PMI’s core values, we offer all residents 24-hour emergency maintenance services. Upon move-in, each student will receive the emergency maintenance hotline to call during off-hours.
For students that do not already have a chosen roommate or enough roommates for a full townhome rental, we are able to offer roommate matching services to try to pair roommates together for comfortable living arrangements. Please contact our office directly for this service.
Bard is rented by the bedroom for students. Students will only be responsible for the rent on their individual bedroom. If a roommate decides to move or graduate, you will not be responsible for their portion of the rent. However, all students renting in a townhouse will be jointly responsible for any damage fees.
We offer several leasing options including all-inclusive options. All-inclusive leases will include wifi as well as water, sewer, electricity, and trash within the rent. All-inclusive leases have only 1 monthly payment. Contact us for different pricing options for utilities.
Bard Townhouses is located just off N Earl Street in Shippensburg, PA. Shippensburg University campus is located across the street from our community with several walking paths. Students could easily walk to the Robb Sports Complex, McCune Hall, Kieffer Hall, and more.
Our community is rich with amenities. For students that enjoy outdoor activities, we have a volleyball court and a basketball court within our parklike community settings. We also have a clubhouse which features a large laundry room with a lounge area. Our business center offers several computers with a printer. Our amenities are designed to offer students entertainment, comfortable living, and aid in their academics.
We are a pet-friendly community and allow students to have a maximum of two pets. There are some weight and breed restrictions for dogs. Each pet requires a security deposit and one-time fee as well as additional monthly rent. Please contact us for current pricing.
We offer several options for residents or parents to pay the rent. Options include check, automatic credit card payments, and through our App. We would be happy to assist you with setting up any of these options.
I love the fact that everything is included in student rent such as electricity and internet. It is close to campus and has nice facilities. The manager is always friendly and accommodating. When we had a roommate issue, she was more than willing to work with us.- Google
Bard is a nice and convenient place to live. Its located right across from the university and has a lighted pathway to campus which is great. The staff are friendly and show they care about their residents. The best part about living at Bard is that it is all inclusive pricing and is more homey than a general apartment style.- Google
I have been living at Bard for about a year now. The staff is very personable and easy to talk to. Maintenance staff is always on top of things and are very friendly as well. They definitely go out of their way to help. I love everything about living here. The community, the staff, the price and how it is all inclusive, and the layout of the houses! Definitely would recommend living here.- Google
Very peaceful and quiet. All neighbors are friendly and keep to theirselves. Not many issues with the house. It is in the best condition for a simple college student off-campus housing.- Facebook
Nice apartments with a fun "club house" that is equipped with video games, computers, and a pool table. There is on-site laundry and a mailroom.- Google
Very welcoming. Great location for students. The faculty are always on top of it when it comes to requests. I would recommend this to friends.- Yelp
