FOR RELEASE: Immediate, December 20, 2000
Hudson Valley Community College students will have a new housing option
available to them this winter at Morrison Manor Apartments, located near
the campus on Morrison Avenue in Troy.
"Hudson Valley Community College is already an attractive option for
thousands of students across the Capital Region and beyond – our
graduates have discovered that a Hudson Valley education is an excellent
launching point toward a four-year degree or a rewarding career," said
President John L. Buono. "The availability of convenient student housing
will only enhance the Hudson Valley experience and serve to make the
college even more attractive."
The college has reached an agreement with Michael Klimkewicz, the new
owner of the 84-apartment complex, to provide housing for Hudson Valley
students. Klimkewicz has renovated and furnished the apartments to make
them suitable for student living. He expects that all 84 apartments will
house students, and that students from other institutions will occupy
apartments not filled by Hudson Valley students.
Klimkewicz has agreed to make the facility available for tours by
parents, staff members and prospective students. Klimkewicz also will
offer housing as needed for prospective athletes and their coaches.
The apartment complex is across the street from the college's Hy
Rosenblum Administration Center on Morrison Avenue.
Klimkewicz, the proprietor of MRK Real Property in Clifton Park, also
owns an apartment complex in Johnstown, and he has a similar agreement
with Fulton-Montgomery Community College.
Hudson Valley Community College, located in Troy, offers more than 50
degree and certificate programs in four academic divisions: Liberal Arts
and Sciences; Engineering and Industrial Technologies; Health Science;

New York system, it has an enrollment of more than 9,000 students each
year, and is known as a leader in distance learning initiatives and
Hudson Valley Community College is currently accepting registrations
