The Lebanese American University is a secular, private and independent American university and research institution located in Lebanon. The university is chartered by the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York and is accredited by the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (CIHE–NEASC). It is composed of two campuses, one in Beirut and the other in Byblos, and offers programs leading to degrees in Arts, Business, Engineering, Nursing, Sciences, Pharmacy, and Medicine.

LAU's two main campuses — Beirut and Byblos — are located on hillsides near the Mediterranean Sea, around 35 kilometers apart. The campuses offer similarly structured programs in arts, sciences, and business. Programs in nursing and medicine, as well as junior and senior year courses in engineering and pharmacy, are offered exclusively in Byblos.

The 25,368-square-meter Beirut campus is within reach of the capital. The 159,424-square-meter Byblos campus was inaugurated in 1991 and has seen constant development — from two to ten buildings — since then. Students on both campuses have access to libraries, gymnasiums, residence halls, theaters, wireless internet, computer centers, laboratories, and academic support services.
