It's a nice university. Really tremendous views of the Sea and so forth. But not really worth the visit unless you're a student there.

Beautiful campus located downtown, there are guards watching the gates and they are known to occasionally check for student ids. If you can manage to slip in and explore you can see the beautiful grounds and an amazing view of the sea!

If you are a fan of nature, this is the place for you! It is near the the coast road(Paris street) so you can enjoy watching the sea and visit the American university at the same time.

AUB is not just a beautiful campus but also a great academic institution. If you want to experience a beautiful life/atmosphere on campus and you are also seeking a high quality of education in the Middle East then AUB is the place for you.

After the noises of thr city, the traffic stress, a moment of relaxation for your senses. Walk on this amazing campus, almost car free but full of cats!! Amazing views of the sea, old stone buildings, interesting tress and a great museum. Grab your sandwich and go sit there to forget the surrounding world,you will be in a quiet bubble

It is on the kind of Beirut trail, the museum is great because there are pretty detailed explanations of all the finds, go up the stairs and see the coins from all over the place with well presented descriptions of where they came from, who made them & when.
