Apply for housing in Byblos

The Byblos campus is home to two separate residence halls:  Suzy Saba and a team of assistants manage the three dormitories.

  1. Dorm B,  owned and operated by University Housing, and located just across the street from the campus main gate. Dorm B, a five-floor building divided into two wings, one for men and one for women, houses 207 full-time students and offers four types of accommodations.
  • Standard Room: A fully furnished (28 m2) bedroom, with its own bathroom and balcony, and shared floor/kitchen (Common Room), that houses two students. It also contains a LED TV and a refrigerator.
  • High Standard Room: A fully furnished (35 m2) bedroom, with its own bathroom, that houses two students sharing the floor kitchen (Common Room). It also contains an LCD and a refrigerator.
  • Small Apartment: A two-bedroom apartment (84m2) for two to four students. Each apartment consists of two standard rooms, with a shared living room and a fully equipped kitchenette.
  • Large Apartment: A two-bedroom apartment (120m2) for two to four students. Each apartment consists of two standard rooms, a large common living/dining room and a fully equipped kitchenette. It also contains a washer/dryer.
  1. Dorm C, owned and operated by University Housing, is off campus, just a few minutes’ walk (above Malik’s bookshop). Dorm C offers apartment-style living complete with kitchenettes, living/dining rooms, study rooms, lounge facilities and a baby-foot.

All settings provide comfortable accommodations that meet students’ academic and social needs. Wireless Internet, cable, and individual air conditioning are available in all rooms. The halls also provide cleaning and maintenance services, 24-hour security, kitchen and laundry facilities, lounge facilities equipped with cable TV, DVD player, play station, computers, free Internet access, billiard/baby-foot, and vending machines. The common areas (hallways, lounges, common rooms, elevators, and parking lots) are all monitored round-the-clock by CCTVs. All the apartments have a living room and a fully equipped kitchenette. A free shuttle service is provided between Dorm C and the campus.

Student resident assistants live on-site and help familiarize residents with the buildings and available resources as well as hall policies.
