Resource-based city refers to the city, which is based on the formation and development of natural resources such as minerals and forests, and takes resource exploitation and processing as leading industry. According to the types of resources, resource-based city can be divided into coal city, forest city, nonferrous metallurgical city and oil city. According to development process, resource-based cities are divided into two types, one is "mine first then the city", the other is " city first then the mine". This paper addresses the latter one. City originated before the development of resources, and the exploitation and processing of resources which is situated in surrounding areas has accelerated the development of the city, and caused the rapid expansion of urban construction land, the rapid change of spatial structure. The urban residential space plays an important role in the spatial change of urban function, and its spatial optimization has become an important content of urban spatial structure adjustment. The paper, taking Yulin City as an example, studies the evolution of urban residential space by analyzing residential space of Yulin main built-up areas, and exploring the current situation of urban residential space and the factors that influence the spatial distribution of urban residential space.
