This study investigated the degree to which Public-Private Partnership (PPP) services are related to infrastructural development in Nigerian Universities. The research design used was descriptive survey method. The population for the study encompassed all the 20 universities in South-west Nigeria. Stratified random sampling was used to select 12 universities comprising of Federal, State and Private universities in the south-west geopolitical zones in Nigeria. Simple random sampling techniques were used to select 2,500 participants. The findings of the study revealed a significant relationship between PPP and the provision of infrastructure (0.024) with df (1:2498) and p<0.05). There was also a significant relationship between PPP and maintenance of infrastructure (0.026) with df (1:2498) and p<0.05). The implication of these findings is that university goal achievement cannot be determined with only PPP and provision of infrastructure but may also be determined by the extent to which these facilities are adequately provided. Based on the findings of the study, it was recommended among others that competent units be established in every university to monitor construction, standard and maintenance of all infrastructure. Plus public enlightenment programs to encourage community participation in the development of infrastructures in the universities.
