Once in you'd be transferred to a huge hidden green space, lots of trees, flowers, cats and stairs! Green oval brings lots of childhood memories & it's amazing for sports (walking, jogging, riding bicycle, playing basketball, football, or any sort of physical work out! Kid's playground is just as fun with different slides, swings, plastic toy houses, sand pit, &... More

AUB has been around for 150 years and it keeps getting better. An icon emblematic of Lebanon's "not giving up" attitude, its grounds are clean, with plenty of seating to enjoy the view from the upper campus to the seafront below, and helpful folks at the visitors center. Just let security know when you enter that you're a tourist. No... More

Gorgeous campus. Prettier than most campuses around the world. Take a walk around it and go down its steps towards the sea. Lovely green environment and beautiful architecture. Take your ID, they'll check at reception. Free.

Aside from being one if the oldest and best universities in the region, you should probably pay it a visit to enjoy its beautiful campus and its strategic location spreading from Hamra street all the way to the sea. I personally spent four years studying at this university and i still make sure to pay a visit and walk around... More
