The purpose of this study is to examine the residents’ perceptions of tourism impacts and how those perceptions influence their support for tourism development.Higher education students in the final year in Yogyakarta were assessed regarding their perceptions on tourism impacts and their willingness to support tourism development. 108 questioners were valid as primary data for Partial Least Squares (PLS) analysis.Among five proposed hypotheses, only two (economic impact and social benefits impact) were found to be positively significant to tourism development supports.Whereas, social and cultural costs as well as cultural benefits did not significantly influence tourism development supports.
