Abstract

This study examines the use of the Global System of Mobile Communication (GSM) among University students in Malaysia. The survey approach was used in data collection from a sample population from University Teknologi Malaysia. Fifty undergraduate and post graduate students were sampled at the university library. Results from a multiple regression analysis shows that there is a significant relationship between age, monthly income/allowance of respondents, marital status and rate of calls made and received per day (P<0.05). Gender and mode of study were found to be insignificant (P>0.05).Results from t test equally indicate that the respondents do not vary in their perception on benefits derivable from the use of GSM (t = -.483, P >0.05).Majority of the respondents also agreed that they use GSM to contact their lecturers, course mates, parents, siblings and sending of short message services (SMS).The study conclude with discussions on findings which would be relevant to education policy makers and other interest parties
