Abstract

This study investigated the place of infrastructure in maintaining quality in Nigerian universities. Using a 20-item self designed questionnaire and Available Infrastructure Checklist (AIC), data were collected from a random
sample of 800 final year students drawn from federal (300) and state  (500) universities in the country. The data were analysed using the t-test statistic and descriptive statistics. It was found that there is no significant difference in infrastructural development between the state and federal universities. Thus, it is recommended that government increases funding towards development of the infrastructure. It is also recommended that universities adhere to appropriate standards of infrastructure maintenance and enrol only those students for whom they have adequate facilities.
