Purple Threads

What is Purple Threads?

Purple Threads is a professional closet offering free professional clothing to current UAlbany students. Students are asked to show their ID at the entrance and are allowed to choose three pieces of clothing per semester.

We are located in Campus Center, Room 323, on the west side of the building's third floor.

Purple Threads is now closed for the 2022-23 Academic Year. Please visit us again during the first week of September 2023.


A clothing rack loaded with suits and other professional clothing is positioned inside an atrium.
