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.

Our Fall 2023 hours are:

  • Monday: Noon to 4 p.m.

  • Wednesday: 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.

  • Friday: Noon to 6:30 p.m.

Students can also arrange an appointment, if necessary, by emailing Purple Threads Coordinator Violette Davenport at [email protected].


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