We wandered around the campus with alumni of the university. Very beautiful campus and worth a visit but not really anything to do apart from wander round.

One of the most beautiful campuses in the world. With an impressive collection of exotic trees which are all tagged with their common name and scientific name. Wonderful landscaping and a museum worth visiting

Absolutely loved walking around campus! Beautiful. The Archeological Museum was small, but fantastic and well laid out. I appreciated the bookstore and the AUB swag for sale. Great views of the Med.

A green island in the concrete metropolis. Guarded by police. A calm, tranquil land. BEAUTIFUL GARDENS. neo-romantic or old English type houses mixed with ultra modern fancy rusty steel plated bdgs. Wish I were a student here... Huge sports grounds.

I dont know much about the education of this university but the buildings are worth to be seen if you are visiting Beirut and it is the only Tobacco free pubic Zone in the whole of Lebanon .

It is a great campus - with greenery everywhere, foreseeing the sea. With 150 years of history, AUB has a lot of beautiful buildings and places to visit for all.
