The Lebanese University Campus has regrouped the various teaching faculties, previously scattered around Beirut, into a single, multidisciplinary
facility, with 13 faculty buildings supported by dormitories, central catering, a sports complex within extensive landscaping. It aims to
become the pedagogic center of excellence in the country, hosting around 33,000 students by the year 2017.
The campus’s master plan places the faculties within a protected and landscaped environment, which can foster the growth of a real university
community. All support facilities, including the thermal plant, central power plant, telecommunications, central water storage reservoir and
elevated tower, water supply networks (domestic, irrigation and fire), water treatment (reverse osmosis plant), sewage water drainage, storm
water drainage and storm water management basin, are centralized for the whole campus. The urban integration of the University campus
within the master plan of the metropolitan region of Beirut will also help to create a regional pole of development.
