Foy Townhouses

The Foy Townhouses were built in 1982 and are named after President Emeritus and Life Trustee, Dr. Linus Richard Foy. Dr. Foy was named President of Marist College in 1958 and became, at the age of 28, the youngest college president in the United States. He served as President of Marist College from 1958 to 1979, and made countless contributions to the continued development and success of the College  

The Foy Townhouses accomodate 210 students in three buildings overlooking the Hudson River. Each of the three buildings is divided into seven three-story town houses with living, dining, and lounging areas, as well as terraces overlooking the Hudson. Each town house has space for ten students - the main floor consists of a full kitchen and large common area, upstairs there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, and on the lowest level there is another small common area, one bathroom, and two bedrooms. A specially designed annex was built to accommodate qualified, physical handicapped students. These town houses currently house sophomore students.  (Source: Building & Place Names)
