The population for the study comprised all 27,826 full time undergraduate students out of which 1600 participants were selected through stratified random technique. A self-designed validated and reliable (r = .87) questionnaire was used for data collection. Findings from the study revealed a weak, positive and significant relationship between university administration effectiveness and automated admission (r = .171; p < .05). There is also strong, positive and significant relationship between university administration effectiveness and online course registration (r = .891; p < .05). Finally, strong, positive and significant relationship is also discovered between university administration effectiveness and computerised hostel allocation (r = 0.721; p < .05). Premised on the study findings, the article recommends among other things that the university authority should ensure that websites are being updated regularly, and are more user-friendly. Also, the university should re-consider the installation of free Wi-Fi on campus to enable better internet connectivity for students and staff.
