The estate surveyors and valuers strongly believe that accessibility has strong effects on property values. This paper examined the intra-community road network of Covenant University with the aim of determining accessibility and connectivity empirically. The graph of the road network was derived from the master plan of the community and graph theoretic qualitative technique used to determine accessibility and connectivity; while correlation and analysis of variance techniques used showed high negative correlation between the variables. It was discovered that there is high negative correlation between the two variables, r being 0. 7 4 while the coefficient of determination was calculated to be 54. 5, thus indicating that only about 55% of the variation in accessibility is explained by the connectivity of the Covenant University intra-community road network. The research finds empirical way of determining accessibility, and recommends the application of the finding to larger urban communities
