がっこうぐらし!原作の手紙の緯度経度がN35.419,E139.645、原作の地図も一致するし、横浜の根岸周辺で確定だと思う pic.twitter.com/eLrxXxtnwt— ながこみ (@NAGAKOMI) July 19, 2015
According to Twitter user Nagakomi, the school where School-Live! takes place is located between Negishi and Yokohama in Kanagawa prefecture. Specifically, the coordinates N35.419,E139.645, as shown in a chapter of the manga. The chapter even shows a map location to point out the school's exact position.

Another Tweet compares the nearby location of Yokohama Midorigaoka High School to School-Live's own setting. The two facilities share striking similarities.

Nagakomi suggests that the school in the manga is based on Midorigaoka High School, St. Isidore's University is based on Seiko Gakuin Middle & High School, and the Randall Corporation is based on Nakaodai Junior High School.
