Notre Dame of Marbel University occupies an 8-hectare lot main campus along the busy Alunan Avenue, City of Koronadal, South Cotabato. It is in the heart of the City of KOronadal and adjacent to the University is the South Cotabato DepEd Division office, the SMRAA Sports Complex, the South Cotabato Gymnasium and Cultural Center, and the Development Bank of the Philippines and within walking distance to the major commercial centers of the City, banks, government agencies, private companies/establishments, the City Hall of Koronadal and the Provincial Capitol of South Cotabato.

By virtue of its location and having very good cemented roads and highways, the rest of Koronadal and its environs are easily accessible by private or public transportation. Through the years, Notre Dame of Marbel University has become an important landmark sharing the development growth of a growing Agro-Industrial zone in the Southern Philippines.

The University with thirty (30) large and small functional buildings, has a population of 10,000 consisting of administrators, faculty members, students (Elementary, High School, College, Graduate School and Short-term courses) and Non-teaching support staff.

Seventy-five percent of the students are from the rural area outside the City of Koronadal, and close to 85% are children of farmers, whose income are very much dependent on agriculture.

NDMU has other campuses which serve the education needs of South Cotabato and its environs. Five (5) kilometers away from the main campus is a Demonstration Farm, complete with structures and instructional facilities for the Agriculture Department.

Planted on the 35-hectare Demo Farm are varied crops plus 800 mango trees and other fruit trees which meet the instructional and laboratory needs of the Agriculture students.

The Demo Farm also houses livestocks for academic purposes and a man-made lake for tilapia culture. With the most modern post harvest facilities installed in the Demo Farm, it also serves as a training center for the CCC-Farmers College and other Agriculture-based project of the University.

Currently, NDMU is embarking on cutflowers and has acquired a 4 hectare lot for the purpose.To be more responsive to the plight of its Grant-in-Aid/working students, NDMU acquired a 500 sq m. lot with a 2-storey house in Pantua Village, City of Koronadal, which answers the housing facility needs of the GIA of the University.

Aware of its role in the community, NDMU expanded to a newly acquired 5.5 hectare lot along General Santos Drive, City of Koronadal, where the most modern facilities for the Basic Education Department (Elementary/High School) are housed.

Eight (8) large and small buildings presently occupy this land area, the latest of which is a 3-storey HS Science building where the library (with internet connection), and the well-equipped science computer laboratories are situated.
