EMPAC is the most modern-looking building on RPI campus as well as in Troy NY. It has auditoriums and theaters, and also has one or two diners. The terra cafe serves $7 lunch on Wednesday

“Super Space for Eclectic Offerings”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

The EMPAC is a state of the art modern facility, just up the hill from the downtown district of restaurants and bars ... ample parking, very comfortable... if you can find a concert you would like to experience, this is a great place to do so... the offerings are eclectic though

“A marvel of engineering”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

We attended a conference at EMPAC and so did not experience a performance there. But we were blown away by the technology and the acoustic perfection of the studios and hall. Don't miss the video loop in the lobby showing the building under construction.

“WoW”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

I was there on a college visit with my son. I enjoyed marveling at the architecture on the inside and out. What's interesting is that there is a balcony behind the stage. You don't see that very often in performance spaces, unless it's a theatre-in-the-round.

“Exceptional!”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

This is a place where you experience the best of today's modern media presentations! I have seen several events at this place, some good, and some great! The building and the presentation spaces are spectacular. All in all, a well spent time!
