In their sophomore year at Greendale, Troy had a sleepover with Abed in his dorm room, and they both created a blanket fort. They decided to make the fort bigger and expanded it past Abed's room until it took over the entire dormitory. Eventually, the blanket fort becomes so popular that it becomes a craze that sweeps over to other college campuses. Its first appearance was in the Season Two episode "Conspiracy Theories and Interior Design". It later inspires the creation of a pillow fort and another blanket fort in the Season Three episode "Digital Exploration of Interior Design".
In the study group's second year at Greendale, Troy was living in Pierce's mansion. Abed invited him to sleep over at his dorm where they intended to build a blanket fort. Britta mocked thirst immaturity but her negativity didn't stop them from building the fort. It was a small tent-like structure anchored by Abed's bunk bed. Happy with how it turned out, they decided to expand it to fill his entire room. Abed's friend Pavel stopped by during its construction and was impressed with what they created so far. When Pavel asked if he could join them, Troy and Abed asked him in return if he had any blankets himself. He replied he had a "buttload" which pleased the duo as they had a plan.
Not too long afterwards, other students helped further expand the fort outside of Abed's room into the dorms hallway. Troy was worried that it no longer could be considered a fort but Abed told him it was okay as long it's made out of blankets. Troy regarded some sheets Leonard gave him and thought they'd be perfect for use in a memorial dedicated to Pierce's mom who just passed away. The construction continued until the blanket fort stretched beyond the dorms and into other sections of the school. An intricate network of multiple tunnels were created and one was entered by a "Professor Professorson". He was being pursued by Jeff and Annie who were investigating his true identity.
Jeff and Annie chased after the professor where they ran into Troy and Abed and explained the situation. Abed explained the rules of the blanket fort and said pursuits were allowed. Using book reading lights, Abe and Troy led Jeff and Annie until Leonard blocked their path. Abed warned him that he shouldn't be in that section as he already had two farting violations. Annie pointed out Professorson was getting away so Troy led them through a short cut in the forts Turkish district. They were breifly distracted when they found Britta inside a bizarrely themed party room until Annie picked up the professors trail. The foursome tried to catch him but they were all stopped by a Latvian Independence parade which prevented their pursuit.
