"Apartment 303" is the residence originally home to Troy and Abed which they moved into during their third year at school. The apartment is located at 3624 Dresser Avenue in Colorado and over the years has been the home to various members of the study group. Not long after Troy and Abed had their housewarming party Annie was invited to move in with them. In his fifth year at school Troy moves out to pursue an incredible opportunity. In her sixth year at school, a homeless Britta is invited by Annie and Abed to move in with them. The apartment's first appearance was in the Season Three episode "Remedial Chaos Theory".
In the "Season One" episode "Pascal's Triangle Revisited", Troy's father kicks him out of the house, and he tries to get Abed to let him move into his dorm. Abed refuses, and explains that in this point in their relationship such a move would be "jumping the shark"; them constantly being together could cause them to end up hating each other. Troy eventually understands his reasoning and accepts a previous offer from Pierce to move into his mansion. He stays throughout "Season Two" although he still remains close friends with Abed even staying over in his dorm one night and building a blanket fort. It's assumed after the events of the finale "For a Few Paintballs More" and Pierce's quitting of the study group that he moved out of the mansion between then and the "Season Three" premiere "Biology 101". It is at the first study group meeting of the year that he and Abed announce that they will be moving in together.

Pictures of Abed, Annie and BrittaEdit
Beginning in Laws of Robotics & Party Rights, the pictures of Troy and Abed were replaced with pictures of Abed, Annie and/or Britta.
The apartment is numbered 303 as a reference to the difference in the production code and air number due to "Remedial Chaos Theory" airing after "Competitive Ecology" despite being filmed before. This may also be a nod to the area code, 303, which is used in Denver, the capital of Colorado.
