The quality of land scape is integrated with the individual’s needs. The scope of landscape must be determined according to user needs and planning methods. The main purpose is to propose a HOQ model to identify the landscape design requirements. The Islamic University of Gaza (IUG) was used as a case study. The need to implement the proposed HOQ model has been identified. Also, the male and female students` priorities have been identified, and the weight of campus landscape design elements were extracted. The male and female IUG students’ needs were identified using a questionnaire survey. The data were analyzed for testing statistical validity and reliability using SPSS. HOQ Model was built using EDRAW Max program. The most ten important student needs are "cleanliness, praying, feeling safe, feeling comfortable psychic, drinking, spaciousness and breadth, shading, quiet, rest and sitting, and fresh air". Based on these results and needs assessment, the HOQ was constructed. The most important design elements are "group of seats, shrubs, trees, lawns, pergola, and seats chairs or benches". This study will add to the designer’s knowledge about HOQ application in design, and contributes significantly to consider public participation as a way in collecting the VOC.
