This research found out the attitudes of undergraduates toward Information and Communication Technology in University of Ilorin, Ilorin, Nigeria. It also found out if there was any difference between the attitudes of male and female undergraduates toward ICT.  It was a descriptive research of the survey type. The instrument used for data collection was a questionnaire tagged Undergraduates Attitudinal Questionnaire (UAQ) adapted from Anaza (2011). 100 Copies of the questionnaire were distributed in five faculties.

Two research questions were stated in the study while percentage and frequency counts were used to answer the research questions. The result revealed amongst others that the attitude of undergraduates toward ICT were positive; the male undergraduates had positive attitude towards ICT than their female counterparts. Based on the findings of the study, the following recommendations were made; all faculties in universities especially University of Ilorin should be provided with ICT facilities, such as computers, internet facilities, interactive boards and other relevant facilities. Since the world is a global village, students need to be taught how to develop positively high attitude toward ICT.
