The National Kidney and Transplant Institute sits in the center of a 58,899 square-meter lot, along East Avenue in Quezon City.

The Main Building houses most of the Cost Centers and where the Administrative offices can be found. The Annex Building encloses the recently opened Marcos Wing and the Radiology Dept (MRI and CT Scan centers), Center for Special Services and also the ER Dept.
