Abstract:

This study examined the situation of infrastructure in the universities in South-West Nigeria, how it affected the students' perceived motivation to learning and attempted at determining students' preferred areas of satisfaction with the available infrastructure. The universities with different characteristics such as curriculum focus, year of establishment, ownership and residential statuses were used. A descriptive survey research design was adopted for use with the final year students as targeted population. A total of 800 students from three faculties and a college constituted the sample frame while the instruments were the Students' Infrastructure Assessment Questionnaire (SINFAQ), Students' Perceived Motivation to Learning (SPMOTOL-Q) and Observation/Interview Schedule (OBIS). Based on the major findings of the study, some suggestions to enhance the successful realization of goals of university education such as provision of adequate and quality infrastructure needed to serve the students educational needs among others were made.
