Nice looking campus and please tell to stroll around in. It's probably a good place to college girls as well. Beyond that, there is the free museum located here, which I highly recommend checking out.

Just wander around and visit the buildings. Architecture is interesting. Get a good view of the sea. Go to the bookstore. Talk to the students.

This oasis of greenery and flowers, adorning a 150 year old educational institution is well worth visiting. One of the premier universities in the Middle East, the AUB is the Lebanese version of an IvyLeague establishment in the US.

I lived there for 3 years during my study. The safest place to walk in Beirut ;) Enjoy the view of the sea from upper campus, many different types of trees and plants while walking. Plenty of cats around. It will be a bit crowded...More

The AUB campus is not large but more of a boutique campus surrounded by Beirut city blocks and traffic. A peaceful walk through the grounds is refreshing.

I went by here to get a UAB t-shirt. Other than that there isn't much to see or do, unless you just want to watch students walk around!
