AUB is one of the oldest universities in Lebanon. It has the largest campus with spectacular views of the sea. It is also a highly sought after university with high achievements and demands.

Beautiful campus and probably the safest place to be if the ares gets a little unstable. The campus is known to have an array of cats and I have to say, they are all cute! The rooms and auditoriums are prone to the electrical outs but it's comfortable and folks seem very accustom.

An absolutely gorgeous campus is a great place for a walk. Sign in at the gate and enjoy the view of the water and all the greenspace.

The Campus is breathtaking!! It is one of the oldest campus' in the world, and oversees the Mediterranean Sea. I try to visit on every trip to Beirut, just to stroll around the campus.

A Rich cultural heritage is evident in this beautifully laid out campus. The campus has the traditional architecture and moves into some modern structures that blend harmoniously. This seat of education has seen a lot of change and has remained constant through conflicts and boom times. It's an interesting place to visit and there are many student recitals and plays... More

One of the best university campuses you will ever see! The layout is superb, and the vegetation is wonderful. You feel so refreshed walking through the university - especially when the some of the numerous cats decide to accompany you :).

My three brothers and I + my daughter are all graduates of AUB. It is the best reputable accredited university in the middle east. Perfect for education, personality building with an amazing beautiful campus in the midst of a high class cosmopolitan residential & business area.
