Shuttered college campus in Connecticut to be auctioned

Hartford

A Connecticut college campus that closed in December is up for auction.

The Republican American reports that an auction for Lincoln College of New England‘s Southington campus is scheduled for Aug. 16 with an opening bid of $5 million.

Tulsa, Oklahoma-based real estate auctioneers Williams & Williams says the 32-acre campus has seven buildings, totaling 113,000 square feet.

The campus closed to students after officials learned the New England Commission on Higher Education was placing its accreditation on probation for two years. At the time, the school was already experiencing financial struggles and declining student enrollment.

The campus, which originally opened in the mid-1960s, had long offered the state’s only degree in mortuary science and funeral services. That program has since been transferred to Goodwin College in East Hartford.
