Western University is located in the city of London, Ontario. The main campus of Western, over which this STARS application is based, is delimited by the following streets: Windermere Rd (North), Phillip Aziz (South), Western Rd. (West) and Richmond St. (East). Additional locations found along Western Rd. (including Residences, Academic and Administrative Buildings) have also been included in this boundary.

The affiliated colleges, Brescia University College, Huron University College and King’s University College were also exempted from the assessment as Western does not manage the colleges' operations or facilities.
