Abstract: Maslow s hierarchy of needs theory shows that if the basic needs are not properly met, that is, physiological needs and safety related needs, human beings can not reach the level of self realization. This study attempts to test this theory with the living standards of teachers at haramaya University (researchers explore the level of academic staff). Using qualitative methods, this paper makes an empirical investigation on the living conditions of teachers in this university and its significance to the implementation of quality education. In order to achieve this, this study attempts to determine four themes of the concept of academic living standards from the perspective of phenomenology. These include (1) wages, (2) housing, (3) job security, andd (4) self-esteem. The findings of the study revealed that, among other things, poor living conditions of higher education staff, rising living cost, inadequate monthly salaries, derisory housing allowances, and lack of job security made it extremely difficult to change the workplace and resulted in low morale and poor self-esteem of the teaching staff. It is difficult to imagine high-quality education without high-quality instructors. To improve the quality of higher education, basic needs of academic staff must be met; educational inputs must be fulfilled, and the teaching profession should be made more attractive and an important priority of the government.
