Abstract: This study investigated the availability and utilization of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) facilities for effective teaching and learning in education programmes in Nigerian Universities. 100 lecturers from a public and a private university in Oyo State, Nigeria were randomly selected for the study. A questionnaire; Availability and Utilization of ICT Facilities Questionnaire(AUICTFQ) was used as the instrument for data collection, while the data collected were analyzed using simple percentage and chi-square. The split-half method using the Pearson ‘r’ was used to obtain a reliability coefficient of 0.82.The findings revealed that ICT facilities which serve as a major contributor to effective teaching and learning in universities were not available. The study recommends among others strategies for its (ICT) maximum utilization; and that ICT facilities should be made available for effective teaching and learning at the universities
