Universal Design (UD) is a concept that encompasses strategies in design that provides comfort, flexibility and adaptability in the built environment and improves the quality of life of all human beings. Perceptible information as a principle of UD that needs to be incorporated in the design of shopping malls in southwest Nigeria because it helps communicate sensorial information effectively to users notwithstanding the condition of the users or their sensory capacities. The aim of this study is to evaluate the use of perceptible information in shopping malls located in southwest Nigeria with a view to providing a standard for designing shopping malls that fulfill all requirements of UD. The quantitative method of data collection was used to obtain data. The data obtained was statistically analyzed and used to generate results related to the study. The Statistical Package of the Social Sciences (SPSS) was used for the statistical analysis and the results were presented using descriptive texts, figures, plates and tables. The study uncovered that the application of perceptible information as a UD principle in shopping malls in southwest Nigeria is insufficient. The study concluded by recommending various strategies through which perceptible information can be implemented in shopping malls in southwest Nigeria.
