What sho​​uld I expect?

You are about to embark on a vibrant new stage in your life, set in an internationally diverse community. If this is your first time in Lebanon then expect differences in culture, climate, food, language and rules of behavior and norms.

Getting into a routine, phoning or make regular contact with home, talking to a member of staff at the University and actively engaging in the AUB and Beirut community are all ways to manage and embrace this period of readjustment. It’s important to build a strong support network of people you can turn to if you feel overwhelmed. Your OIP Student Mentor will help ease your transition and integration into Lebanon and the AUB community by organizing regular cultural events throughout the academic year. We also recommend that you join student societies or clubs as a way of meeting new people and making friends. Last but not least, we at the Office of International Programs have an 'open door' policy, so just drop by if you have any questions or concerns.

It’s difficult to finalize housing before arriving in Beirut, but most visiting students find satisfactory housing within a few days after their arrival. We advise you not to finalize your housing before you have visited the rooms.

The most effective way to find housing in Beirut is via Facebook and internet sites. these  include the following:
