An important component of housing consumption is housing satisfaction. The determinants of housing satisfaction have been well documented in literature. Meanwhile, the determinants across the residential densities have not been well outlined, especially in Lagos. This paper, examines the sustainable determinants of housing satisfaction in various residential density areas in Lagos metropolis, Nigeria. The paper adopted a multi-stage sampling technique by stratifying the residential areas into high, medium and low density. The study identified 186 residential neighborhoods, forty-seven were proportionately selected randomly, from low (5), medium (15) and high (27) density zones. Two thousand, three hundred and thirty-nine (2,339) households were systematically selected in low (359), medium (945) and high (1035) residential areas (a household per building) from 1,528,629 households. Findings showed that two of the variables are positively correlated and significant in low and medium densities i.e. number of rooms occupied and type of buildings, while one (1) variable in high density (number of rooms occupied). Descriptive and correlation analysis were used to analyze the data at p<0.05 significance level. The study concludes that number of rooms occupied, types of building are the sustainable housing satisfaction determinants in medium and low density areas while number of rooms occupied is a major determinant in high density areas. Therefore, sustainable housing satisfaction determinants varied across the residential densities in Lagos metropolis, Nigeria,
