WELCOME TO AUB!
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.
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.
AUB Dormitories, Government and Ministry of Health regulations regarding travel and COVID-19 testing
- If you are coming from abroad and want to check-in to AUB dorms, please note that you will need to provide Student Housing with 2 negative PCR test results (HARD COPY). If you are already in Lebanon or have arrived 14 days prior to your check-in date, you will be required to provide only 1 PCR test result before checking-in to AUB dorms. COVID-19 Guidelines for AUB dormitories and more information on Housing is also posted on the Student Housing website.
- You are no longer required to self-quarantine in a hotel upon arrival to Beirut Airport. However, you are still required to fill out the Impact form on the following link: https://covid.pcm.gov.lb/impactmobile/tracking-registration
- All passengers arriving in Lebanon are required to show proof of a valid travel insurance policy that includes coverage of medical care related to COVID-19.
- All newly-accepted international students will get the chance to receive the COVID-19 vaccine at the American University of Beirut Medical Center (AUBMC) in case they cannot get vaccinated in their home countries prior to their departure.
