One of the challenges facing private universities in Nigeria is the inability to retain highly competent academic staff. Heavy workloads, lack of adequate resources and an unfavourable work environment, all affect the efficiency and productivity of the academic staff. The poor QWL can cause high-stress levels, which may have detrimental effects on family life and the well-being of academic staff. Based on the above assertions, this study, therefore, examined the QWL of academic staff in private universities, north-central Nigeria. Theoretically, this study adopted the self and organizational theories. A sample size of 245 academic staff was purposively selected for the study. The development and Validation Scale was used to measure QWL among the selected academic staff. The finding indicates that, there was a disparity in terms of the academic staff socio-demographic features and QWL. The study concludes that in today era QWL is an important factor in determining academic staff satisfaction in private universities in north-central Nigeria and if it is undermined it can affect the academic staff level of satisfaction adversely.
