The main aim of this study is to determine the kind and nature of defects in university buildings. Questionnaires were administered to 550 university students with a 81% response rate. The findings suggest that some defects require maintenance urgently and that 20 defects were very noteworthy to the building users. In the view, of the building users, these defects affected the buildings' performance. The research found that lift failure, faulty electrical systems and roof damages were the defects that participants considered highly critical and requiring urgent maintenance intervention.
