SCAD Hong Kong is located in Sham Shui Po in the northwestern section of the Kowloon Peninsula. One of the earliest developed districts in Hong Kong, Sham Shui Po is characterized by a mix of residential buildings with government, institutional and community facilities. The modern, nine-story Dragon Centre shopping mall is located within a few blocks of SCAD Hong Kong and features an indoor roller coaster and skating rink, in addition to hundreds of shops and restaurants. Street markets in the area are known for offering inexpensive electronics and computer equipment, garment construction items, office supplies, flowers and miscellaneous products.

A historical point of interest in the district is the Lei Cheng Uk Han Tomb Museum, an ancient brick tomb built during the Eastern Han Dynasty (AD 25–220).

SCAD revitalized the historic North Kowloon Magistracy building, a former courthouse, into the leading site for the study of art and design in Asia, while honoring the structure’s historic and cultural significance.
