ICT has appeared to play a crucial role in the enhancement of skills of pupils in academia, which is seen in the tertiary level education at its most. The present study aims at examining the perception and usage of ICT instruments, such as computer, smart-phone, and internet services and accessories for personal and educational purposes among the university students in Bangladesh. A sample of 300 students of undergraduate and graduate programs from 7 universities was constructed through ‘Snow-Ball’ technique. Questionnaire survey, following the personal interview method, was conducted to generate benchmark data. Survey data were analyzed through applying descriptive and inferential statistics. The outcomes of the study elicited that majority percentage of the students of the selected universities of Bangladesh use ICT for mostly personal and partly educational purposes though it is their belief that ICT instruments improve their academic capability, problem solving ability, and communication skills. Furthermore, correlation analyses showed that age, level of education, and place of residence have positive and significant level of association with most of the areas of ICT usage patterns. However, notable gender differences were not found in ICT usage pattern. Potential implications of these results are discussed in later section.
