Housing needs abound in every country, particularly in the developing countries. The needs are more prevalent in the urban centres. This study conducted in Oke-Foko, Ibadan focused on a particular area of the city, the core, in order to examine the housing needs in that context. The housing needs in this context were investigated in a survey conducted in 2013. The bottom-up approach, considered to be responsive, was adopted in which residents assessed their housing and housing environment and thus defined their housing needs. The results showed that the needs of residents were defined by the perceived crowding and adequacy of their physical environment including neighbourhood and infrastructure. The findings suggest that adequate attention be given to amenities, neighbourhood facilities such as open spaces, outdoor spaces and most importantly housing unit facilities such as toilets, bathrooms, cooking spaces and storage spaces as needs that are important for providing acceptable houses in the core of Ibadan. Keywords: core area housing, crowding, housing adequacy, housing need, Ibadan.
