Staffs are the most important capitals of the organizations. Today, focusing on quality of work life of staffs who devote more than one third of their lives to the organization is very important and valuable. The main objective of the present project was “to examine the relation between organizational structure and quality of work life of women staff in Islamic Azad university branches”. Our method in this descriptive study was selected as correlation-based. The universal society included all women staff of Mazandaran’s Islamic Azad university branches,377 persons, and based on classified random sampling and with using krejcie and Morgan table,191 persons were selected as our samples. We used “organizational structure” and “work life quality” questionnaires for gathering data. Data analyzing was performed by descriptive statistics (frequency and percentage) and inferential statistics (correlation coefficient and pierson coefficient and Regression). Results showed that there is a significant positive relationship between organizational structure and its dimensions with quality of work life.Also, the components of organizational structure (formality, option hierarchy and centralization, respectively) were some significant predictors for quality of work life.
