The Beirut Campus
The Beirut campus is nestled in an urban setting, just steps away from the stimulating cultural, social, educational and recreational opportunities of Lebanon’s capital.
The campus is the university’s foundation site as a women’s college in the early 20th century. Its first building was Sage Hall, erected in 1933. Through the decades, nine other buildings were added over the central campus area that is beautifully landscaped with Mediterranean trees and foliage. The latest addition, which has significantly enlarged the campus expanse to 24,525 square meters, is an impressive complex housing the School of Business and the Riyad Nassar Library.
Two schools operate on the Beirut campus: Arts & Sciences and Business. Students from other schools may take their freshman and sophomore years in Beirut, and transfer to Byblos to complete their junior and senior years. Enrollment in Beirut stands at about 4,925.
