McMaster University is in the city of Hamilton, Ontario, in the Golden Horseshoe along the western end of Lake Ontario. The main campus is bordered to the north by Cootes Paradise, an extensive natural marshland; to the east and west by residential neighbourhoods; and to its south by Main Street West, a major transportation artery. Its northern boundaries are a popular destination for walkers who use the many trails that connect the campus to Royal Botanical Gardens. While the main campus is 152.4 hectares (377 acres), most of the teaching facilities are within the core 12.1 hectares (30 acres). In addition to its main campus in Hamilton, McMaster owns several other properties around Hamilton as well as in Burlington, Kitchener, and St. Catharines, Ontario.
In 2017, the university owned and managed 58 buildings, including both on and off campus housing. The buildings at McMaster vary in age—from Hamilton Hall which opened in 1926, to the university’s new Bertrand Russell Archives and Research Centre, which opened 25 June 2018. McMaster’s main campus is divided into three main areas: the Core Campus, North Campus and West Campus. The Core Campus has most of the university’s academic, research and residential buildings, while the North Campus is made up of the university’s athletic precinct and a small amount of surface parking. The West Campus is the least developed area of the main campus, containing only a few buildings, surface parking, and undeveloped land. Security at the university is provided by special constables employed by McMaster University Security Service, a department of the university.

The KiTZ is developing new diagnostic and therapeutic procedures to combat childhood cancer. This is only possible if research and clinic work hand in hand. To ensure this, the KiTZ is divided into three programs: clinical, translational and preclinical. As soon as the planned new building for the KiTZ has been erected, these areas of the KiTZ can move even closer together.
