This study focuses on the attributes affecting environmental preference for different settings. In everyday life, all setting types have alternatives and each individual make preferences within those alternatives. The main question of this research is how individuals make their preferences. In this study, settings are grouped under two main categories. The first category is obligatory settings that involve the settings that people need or have to use due to the necessities of daily routine. The second category is leisure settings and involves all the settings that people use for leisure activities. The aim of this study is to identify and prioritize attributes affecting environmental preference according to the setting types and for each particular setting. The attributes are grouped under three main headings; aesthetic, physical and behavioral. The respondents are design and nondesign students from the university of Bilkent and Gazi University. The results indicate that attributes affecting the preferences of individuals vary according to the setting type (leisure/obligatory) and each particular setting. In addition, individuals’ gender and educational background affect the attributes considered while making preference.
