The campus is nice with many old buildings. If you walk down the hill you will reach the football field from which there is a gate to the corniche which is really nice.

Beautiful grounds and buildings. Worth a stroll, and there are plenty of benches with great views looking down over the Mediterranean sea. Quite a collection of cats as well which are super friendly.

The American University of Beirut occupies a prime location in the heart of Beirut and in the heart of thousands of its students as well. An icon of the middle east as i gave hundreds of leaders who changed the face of the earth.

went for a walk around the campus couple of times - looks great (one of the nicest i have seen). Do keep in mind that if you decide to combine with a walk around the corniche- it might be complicated to find your way back after 8 PM as they close the gates for AUB.

AUB is one of the oldest universities in the Middle East. It is more than 100 years, expect for the college hall building which was unfortunately down by an explosion back in 1991, but it was built once again from the theme of the old one. Advise visiting.

The AUB is worth a visit. The most beautiful campus with great buildings, sport arenas and green areas. Absolute recommendable - also with the most beautiful view over the Sea

One of the greatest university campuses in the middle east (and possibly beyond). Unique setting, beautiful scenery and multi-national student and faculty.

Just a university as many around the world. Quite big with view on the bay. But quite fine, not noisy
