Housing is a key issue that normally forefront the scene when considering challenges of urbanization and urban growth. It is a fundamental aspect of human life and a major factor in delivering healthy and attractive communities. Increasing interest is now shown towards the study of how people think of their housing and how it affects their lives. Therefore, measuring the housing quality has become an important tool to assess the efficiency of housing provision and the extent to which people are satisfied with it. This research is about examining housing quality and exploring the set of aspects through which it influences people’s quality of life (QOL). It stems out of a general concern about the state of life in cities and the general factors that shape and outline such life. The research aims to critically investigate housing quality and the impact it has on QOL experienced by residents. It employs an integrated conception of housing quality that poses three types of qualities: quality of provision, quality of context and quality of dwelling, and explores the implications of these qualities, in order to provide an overarching understanding of the influences of housing on QOL.
