Abstract : Understanding the different residential practices and strategies of young adults is the objective of this study. The analysis focused on young adults (18-40 years old), the size of the active population and the difficult housing, in a logic of parental decohabitation, quest for autonomy and emancipation.To better understand this issue, a methodological approach, it was necessary to do a literature search, database, "Ouaga 2009", and to prepare for the different neighborhoods of the city of Ouagadougou. The state of the art and the regulatory framework and the housing market in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, have been highlighted. She made a contextual analysis based on datafrom the "Ouaga 2009" study. Then she analyzes the influence of the family and the entourage in the residential choice and the quest for residential autonomy.

Two main typologies of trajectory were identified in the study, these are activity-related trajectories and directional trajectories (center to the periphery). Concerning the forms of appropriation of housing, we were interested in the interior decoration of the living rooms. We have distinguished four types of decorations: religious, family, youthful and mixed decorations.

The preferred means of movement to travel from the housing remains the motorcycle
