The architecture is great and the university's location is nice too. Bliss street is directly next to the beach.

Worth the visit if you have the time! I've visited many university Campuses, but AUB's one is unique! The architecture is special and is a nice, quiet and relaxing spot in the centre of town. Has some nice views over the Mediterranean and best visited during sunset!

Just pop in the visitor centre and they will organize a guided tour of the university site. Great views of the sea and north to Byblos. Museum had more artifacts than the National museum - different stuff. Allow at least an hour to go round.

Great campus within Beirut, the only really green place in the heart of the city with fantastic views of both the sea and the snowy mountains. A great escape from the routines for couples, families, kids, friends etc...

Used to go to college there. Went back a few months ago and definitely worth a look if you can get it. Such a beautiful place.

an oasis of calm and greenery in busy and somewhat noisy Beirut. It is situated on a vast plot of land descending to the sea. Many beautiful and peaceful corners to take in views, read something or intereact with numerous friendly cats. They are well looked after by campus staff. The campus itself is a nice combination of 19th century... More

I was fortunate to have a tour of this beautiful campus, which is filled with these amazing twisted trees and overlooks the majestic Mediterranean.
