This campus is well worth visiting during your trip to Beirut. Has a very nice atmosphere of something like a England University Campus. Beautiful old buildings are the entrance, nice walks around the campus and view of the sea from the campus area. Is very historic and pleasant place to spend a little time in Beirut.

I may be biased when I say this, but having visited a dozen university campuses in some of the greatest cities on earth, the AUB campus is a work of charming, green and beautiful art.

beautiful grounds and lovely buildings. An oasis of calm in central Beirut. Well worth a visit. The complex has lots of beautiful shaded areas, as well as a new gym and pool complex.

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.

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