My father had studied in this university for his postgraduate course and then moved to the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign for a phd and that's why we visited this site; To my surprise, it was well worth the visit. Don't miss the museum.

Marvellous grounds for a wander and filled with friendly cats who will shadow your visit! Leave some ID with the main office on Bliss Street and you can wander freely.

A good place to visit even if you've got no business inside. Right on Bliss St. where the best snacks are served.

If you are in the area, the Museum is worth a visit...they have audio tours that take about an hour to complete.

AUB is a landmark in Beirut and you should make th time to visit...Bliss street has a lot to... More

A good place to stroll about or go for a run and be amidst a few trees. I was there during summer break so all was quiet.

If there is an educational pride in the city, this would be the AUB. Even though there are several other universities that are on an equal level of academic studies, the AUB is a host to students from dozend os countries from all over the world.

Totally different from surroundings! The campus has several gates, so you can get through it spending 20-30 minutes for feeling yourself like a student. This is an active crowded facility, not a monument. Worth looking.

AUB, has a secret that I can never explain. Only AUBites had the feeling of belonging to such a great university. Great experience
