The advancement of an organization can obviously be estimated by employees’ performance.  The aim of this document is to study the relationship of organizational structure (OS) with job performance (JP) of teachers at university level. The OS is classified as: “work specialization, departmentalization, chain of command, span of control, centralization and decentralization, and formalization”. It was a descriptive research and the correlation technique was used. The population comprised of 22 general government universities of Punjab. Sample was selected through simple random sampling technique which comprised of 720 teachers from 12 universities. Data was gathered through two questionnaires in which one was related to classification of OS and other was job performance scale. The data was analysed through quantitative methods. The results of the study revealed that the sampled universities have organic structure. The OS of publicly owned universities was more organic than privately owned universities. The outcomes showed that a positive, weak association exists between OS and teachers’ JP.
