The near-complete College Suites have come a long way since their inception in 2015.

United Group of Companies, Inc. has partnered with Hudson Valley to build housing for students, which will be available by this fall.

Located at 100 Morrison Ave., at the corner of Vandenburg Avenue in Troy, the near complete College Suites at Hudson Valley will soon house 268 students in 72 apartment suites.

Every apartment will include a living room, dining area and full kitchen. The building’s three wings will form an interior patio for recreational use. On-site amenities include 24-hour security, a fitness center, break room, laundry room, bike storage, cable, Internet, management offices and more than 200 parking spaces adjacent to the building.

“Moving into the College Suites at Hudson Valley is the perfect opportunity for students to enjoy their college experience in the luxury of a fully furnished suite located just minutes from campus,” said Michael DiGiacomo, regional manager at United Plus Property Management.

“These colleges in the Capital Region provide a top tier education, and their students deserve a top tier place to live and study; that’s what we’re offering at College Suites,” said DiGiacomo.

“Hundreds of students relocate to the region each year, drawn by the college’s career oriented academic programs and transfer opportunities, and even greater numbers are asking for housing options when considering college,” said president Andrew Matonak.

“As we expand our recruitment activities around New York State and travel abroad to boost international student enrollment, we’re looking forward to having a new opportunity for living and learning near campus,” said Matonak.

The College Suites at Hudson Valley are also located near a variety of restaurants and retail venues including Applebee’s, Deli & Brew, Friendly’s, Price Chopper, Palace Theater, The Egg, Times Union Center, Wendy’s and more.

Rental rates range from $775 per installment per student for a four-bedroom suite, to $898 per installment per student for a two bedroom corner suite. All configurations include utility expenses—electricity, gas, water, sewer and trash. In addition, some students may be eligible for financial aid to help pay for their apartments.

“Creating the College Suites has been a very exciting and fulfilling experience, thanks to tremendous support from Hudson Valley, Rensselaer County and the City of Troy,” said DiGiacomo.

“We’re looking forward to opening our doors to students for the Fall 2017 semester,” he said.
