The research setting was Mickey Leland Condominium site in Addis Ababa. The sample was composed of two hundred fifty-two (136 males and 116 females) adults. A quantitative research approach was employed. Participants were selected using stratified random sampling technique, and a representative sample was drawn through simple random sampling. To collect the data, Ryff’s Psychological Well-being (RPWB) 18-item scale and Interpersonal Support Evaluation Short List 12-items (ISEL 12-Item) scales were used. The collected data were analyzed using descriptive statistics (percentage, mean and standard deviation) Correlational and regression Analyses and Multivariate Analysis of Variance (MANOVA) were used with the help of Statistical Package for Social Scientists (SPSS) version 24. The study found a moderate positive and significant relationship between IPR and PWB. Adult condominium residents’ total mean scores on IPR and PWB were also found to be above average. Moreover, no statistically significant differences were found in IPR and PWB with respect to age, sex, marital status education background, years of living in condominium, and monthly income.
