Apply for housing in Beirut

The Beirut campus is home to three separate residence halls, Santona, Berkeley Hotel,  and Capital Suites. A supervisor and a team of assistants manage the dormitories.

  • Santona is located off campus within a 7-minute walking distance. Kitchenettes and cleaning services are available. 
  • Berkeley Hotel is located within a 10-minute walking distance. Kitchenettes and cleaning services are available. 
  • Capital Suites, for men, is just off campus and offers apartment-style living, complete with kitchenettes.

All settings provide comfortable accommodations that meet students’ academic and social needs. Rooms are neatly furnished with beds, desks, cupboards, safe boxes, and bed sheets and covers. Cable TV, Internet connection, and internal telephone lines are also provided. The buildings are equipped with heating and cooling.

Lounges equipped with TVs and Internet connections and other amenities provide social space and a venue for activities organized by the residence hall team. Students are also welcome to bring their small refrigerators, dishes, and cutlery. Meals can be ordered from any of the surrounding restaurants.


Because space is limited, students applying on full-time basis, who wish to reside on campus must submit an application as soon as they are accepted to LAU. 

Dates for submitting the housing application: 

  • For Spring 2019: Starting  November 15, 2018
  • For Fall 2019: Starting April 15, 2019

  4. Submit the form in person (or via email) along with two passport-size photos

Once your room assignment is confirmed you must do the following:
