Abstract This study examines the basic principles of universal design and its impact on residential satisfaction and intention of continuous residence in public rental housing. Ten independent variables were measured to recognize and assess the applicability of universal design. The average value of the dependent variables pertaining to residential satisfaction and intention of continuous residence were found to be above the median. Among the independent variables, safety, convenience, body fit, and crime prevention were found to also be above the median. However, preference, ease of remodeling the site & unit, exchange & participation, residential diversity, and sense of community were shown to be below the median. Based on the multiple regression analysis, convenience, preference, sense of community, crime prevention, and body fit had a positive influence on residential satisfaction. Despite preference, exchange & participation, and convenience having had a positive influence on the intention of continuous residence, regarding ease of remodeling a unit a negative relationship was made evident. From the perspective of universal design, these results are presumed to be because of the above average physical environment supply, but the environment for exchange & participation and the possibility of personalizing each residential space was found to be inadequate. Effective implementation to redirect the supply policy of public rental housing is needed to focus more on the personalization of space and exchange & participation.
