​​​​Orientation Week is a program of events to welcome you to AUB. Your Orientation will consist of information sessions delivered by university staff and support services, and are designed to help you meet classmates and members of staff and prepare you for the start of your semester.

New International Degree-Seeking Students should attend both their Faculty or group specific orientation sessions AND the International Student Welcome Day.

New visiting and exchange students attending AUB for one semester or academic year are expected to attend the International Student Welcome Day and the Visiting and Exchange group advising meeting.

We recommend that you arrive in Beirut NO later than a day prior to your group’s specific orientation program, as most events begin in the morning. Refer to the practical guide for information on to arrive to campus from the airport.

Airport Pick-up Service
OIP offers a fee-paying transport from the airport to the AUB campus a few days prior to orientation week. Refer to the one of the below pre-arrival checklists for more information.
