“Amazing university”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

This is really amazing, a huge land in Beirut full of flowers and trees, you're just in the nature in the heart of the capital. Being Located between Hamra Street in Upper Beirut and the coast line is really amazing.

“Nothing to look at here”
Reviewed September 12, 2013 via mobile

The university is located between Hamra st and the Corniche. The buildings themselves are quite different from the other buildings in Beirut but aren't anything special. Great to see students though doing their everyday thing

“Something for Every One”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Magnificent campus with great views of the Med along with flora and fauna not seen very often in Beirut. One of the oldest universities in the region and is accredited in the U.S. by the Middle States Accreditation body. Definitely worth a visit and be sure to see their museum and stop in for one of the evening musical activities in their former church.

“Exceeded my expectations”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Such a beautiful campus, with nice old and strong buildings and a fantastic garden with lovely flowers and ancient trees. They also hold concerts here so it is a good idea to check the events.
You can just go inside and stroll around without anyone asking any questions. I wished that I had been a student here.
