Information Communication Technology (ICT) covers a wide range in our world today. This paper examined how students access and utilize information communication technology (ICT) for the betterment of their learning outcomes in Mathematics. This is because Mathematics is considered to be indispensable to humankind. The study adopted a survey research design. Four research questions were answered, using two instruments--Students' Access to and Utilization of ICT Questionnaire (SAUICTQ) and Students' Mathematics Achievement Test. A total of 300 students were randomly selected from two tertiary institutions in Ogun State, Nigeria. The data collected were analyzed using descriptive statistics and multiple regressions. The results revealed that students' access to and utilization of ICT is significantly low. This implies that students in their area of study have low access to ICT to enhance achievement in Mathematics. Considering the results of this study, it was recommended that government should make available adequate funds for the provision of ICT facilities needed in educational sector and that lecturers should be encouraged to use ICT facilities in their teaching.
