Racquet Club is an apartment complex owned by RIT. It is located off-campus on East River Road.

History

Racquet Club was built in 1968 by a third-party management company. In the original construction, 28 buildings were included in the large complex. RIT purchased the complex from its prior owner in 1986.

Issues of structural stability and safety led to all but two of the buildings being demolished, starting in the summer of 1999.[1] A senior living facility was slated to be built in 2003.[2]
