If you have arranged to live in a Dowling residence, and we are unable to meet you at the airport, please follow these directions for getting to your residence and then check in.

Dowling College is located about 1 hour from J.F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), 1 hour and 30 minutes from La Guardia Airport (LGA), and about 3 hours travel from Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR).

If you arrive at Newark Liberty International Airport, go to Ground Transportation and take a bus to JFK International Airport. Go to any JFK terminal.

Upon your arrival at either JFK International Airport or LaGuardia Airport, go to the Ground Transportation area for information. It is usually near the Baggage Claim Area.

Book a ride to Dowling Campus Oakdale or Dowling Campus Brookhaven – whichever one has accommodation reserved for you.
