As an alumna of AUB, I make a point to visit the campus on each of my visit's to Beirut. The grounds are lush with Mediterranean trees, bushes and flowers, the buildings feature traditional Lebanese stone and red tile, the Mediterranean shimmers in the distance...Stepping on campus is like stepping into a different world. Students mill around or sit on... More

We're visiting Beirut with a 3yr old kid and the campus was perfect for him to run around without worrying about cars.

Beautiful grounds and free access to wander around and go to the museum if you just drop your passport with security. If you're touring Beirut be sure to stop by and see the university grounds (long winding paths through manicured gardens and trees overlooking the ocean) and tour the museum which has some great exhibits and artifacts. Spending an hour... More
