The increasing number of population which always increases every year and the existence of regions experiencing expansion in Lampung Province have an effect on the development of regional autonomy development. As the population increases, this area needs to be studied further both physically and socially. An increasing population will certainly increase land use for residential in an area. Meanwhile, the existing land availability is becoming increasingly limited. The increasing number of population will certainly increase the area of the residential area. Meanwhile, for the city area, it is necessary to plan land use as the development of various infrastructure needed by the community. The increase in population encourages changes in land use in urban areas as a form of meeting community needs. This study aims to determine the area of paddy fields that have changed into residential, the factors that affect the change from paddy fields to residential, and determine the patterns and directions of residential. This research was conducted using an overlay technique with analysis using a spatial approach. The results of the research are in the form of land use change models in 2015-2020, besides physical and non-physical factors that cause changes in paddy fields to residential and residential patterns that occur are clustered with the direction of development of residential to the west approaching the city center and public facilities. The conclusion in this study is that by making this model it will be easier to see the distribution of data, factors and patterns of land use change.
