This study investigated the application of ICT (information and communication technology) in the management of universities in the north-central Nigeria. The study was a descriptive survey. The population of the study comprised 1,294 respondents in federal and state universities (763 in federal and 531 in state universities). The sample size consists of 446 respondents, 280 in federal and 166 in state universities. These were selected through proportionate stratified random sampling technique. The instrument used for data collection was a 26-item questionnaire. Data collected were analyzed using mean and SD (standard deviation) to answer the specific research questions, while t-test statistic was used for the hypotheses. The findings of the study showed that ICT can be applied in the areas of accessing of results online, filling of students' personal data and for communication. A major constraint was non-supply of power to many universities and education centres. It was recommended among others that the federal and state government should improve on the training of students and staff in the use of ICT through seminars, workshops, and conferences.
