Hiding in the Banyan Tree in the beautiful and tranquil gardens away from the hustle & bustle of Beirut. All quiet without students today too!

We walked through the campus which is near Hamra to get away from the madding crowd, noise and bustle of Beirut. The grounds are wonderful and contain interesting arhcitecture alongside traditional academic style buildings. There are a lot of indigenous cats in the grounds but they do not bother you. Do pay it a visit

Worth strolling through the campus if you are in the neighbourhood and want to escape the bustling streets of Hamra

After passing security, we went for a long walk through the university grounds. What an amazing campus, with tennis courts and amazingly high quality football pitch with running track around it that overlooks the corniche. Made me want to study there!

Not to be missed! A beautiful landmark in Beirut, one of the oldest universities. Even if you are not a student you will always find an interesting activity to attend. Our latest visit was to attend a concert at the Assembly Hall.
