Oakdale and Brookhaven, N.Y. — Dowling College has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, and has retained A&G Realty Partners and Madison Hawk to manage the sale of two campuses formerly occupied by the university in Oakdale and Brookhaven.

Dowling plans to sell the campuses through two separate, sealed bids as part of its bankruptcy filing. The partnership is currently accepting bids for the university’s 25-acre, waterfront campus in Oakdale. The campus includes over 200,000 square feet of space in six educational, administrative and student housing buildings, including the former W.K. Vanderbilt Estate.

The 101-acre Brookhaven campus will be offered in the first quarter of 2017. The property was home to the college’s aviation program, and includes a state-of-the-art athletic complex, a two-story, 65,000-square-foot building and a 10,000-square-foot airplane hangar with runway access to Brookhaven Airport. RSR Consulting is managing the dissolution of the Dowling College estate.
