Fitting in a visit to AUB on your itinerary will prove to be everything but a waste! The mixture of architecture, the variety of greenery and the cats (there really is no escaping mentioning or seeing a few of them) work together to make the university a remarkable place. Depending on when you do plan your visit, AUB could be... More

Even if you have only one day visiting Beirut, try to make it to AUB. The almost-only green space of the city, the one with the greatest view (sea and mountains), very quiet, and beautiful buildings. Try to have a pic-nic there, as there are plenty of benches in every corner ... And reserve some food for the ever-present cats.... More

I am a graduate of this school so I get free access to the playing area. The kids love it and in summer I almost take them there every other weekend.

I was exploring the city early morning when I passed by the university. Not knowing it was there, I decided to enter it and take a look at the campus. It is definitely a place to go to for people who are interested in architecture. I ran into one of the gardeners and he gladly took me on a tour... More

The historical AUB campus is a wonderful mix of history and rebirth. Almost like a living old Beirut. May be the best place to walk.
