Dub Housing is the second album by American experimental rock group Pere Ubu. Released in 1978, the album is now regarded as one of their best, described by Trouser Press[3] as "simply one of the most important post-punk recordings."

The title is an allusion to the echoes at rows of identical concrete public housing units in Baltimore,[4] presumably reminiscent of the echo and reverberation that characterize dub reggae. The photograph on the cover shows the apartment building on Prospect Avenue near downtown Cleveland in which members of the band lived when this album was recorded.
