The paper examines the Users’ Preferences for Office Spaces in Akure metropolis. Data was collected through questionnaires from the occupants/tenants of office properties in Akure, Nigeria, estate surveying and valuation firms’ management portfolio. A total of 50 offices (representing the total of selected 2 offices from each of the 25-estate surveying and valuation firms in the study area) were sampled for ease of coverage. In the questionnaire administration, 2 office properties were purposively sampled from the portfolio of each sampled estate surveying and valuation firm. In each selected office property, 2 tenants were purposively selected from each sampled office property. Therefore, a total of 100 tenants in 50 office properties were selected for sampling. The paper adopts a quantitative method of data analysis. Descriptive techniques were adopted; it includes the tabular analysis of data using percentages and frequencies. The relative Preference Indexes were also determined. From the empirical studies, it was discovered that most of the respondents have the highest preference for Executive suites type of office space (50.0%), even though a larger percentage of them are occupying Traditional office spaces due to the fact that they cannot afford Executive suites as it is always more expensive as compared to other categories. They, however, have the lowest preference for the Contiguous office category of office space
