The use of the internet for research and studies is now a thing of necessity world-wide, and having a positive attitude toward the use of the Internet is a necessary condition for its effective use. Thus, this research aimed at investigating the attitudes of male and female undergraduate students at the Nasarawa State University, Keffi, towards the use of the Internet. A questionnaire which captured the students' demographic data (like sex, faculty), and their attitudes towards the use of internet, was administered to them in a class-room setting.

Results show that most the students had a positive attitude towards the use of the internet; and there was no significant difference between the attitude of males and that of females. It is therefore recommended that parents, teachers, and the university administrators should encourage both male and female students equally to use the internet for their research and studies. More studies, using a wider audience as participants, are encouraged.
