The main campus populates a triangular section of roads in the Borough of Southwark, immediately north of the Elephant and Castle. London’s South Bank is a short tube or bus journey away from Waterloo or London Bridge. To the north of the campus is Borough Road, where the main entrance is situated and the original building of the Borough Polytechnic Institute. To the west is London Road and to the east is Southwark Bridge Road. At the northwest corner is St George’s Circus.

Schiller International University had a campus in the Technopark Building on the London South Bank University property. In August 2011 Schiller stated that it was closing its London campus and will not start the Autumn 2011 semester there, due to stricter student visa requirements in the United Kingdom.

There is a smaller satellite campus in east London: at Havering (LSBU at Havering), diagonally opposite Harold Wood station.
