This research aimed at investigating the impact of information and communication technology (ICT) on students’ study habits. The research was conducted with two main purposes; Firstly, to investigate students’ familiarity and attitude towards ICTs, and secondly, to examine the possible relationship between students’ use of ICTs and study habits. The results revealed that students have a positive attitude towards ICTs as such use them to facilitate learning, although male students are more favourable toward ICT usage and likely to find that ICT’s help them at their studies. As such students constantly change their study habits based on the type of ICT they use to ease studies. 

Key words: Teaching, learning, study habits, information and communication technology (ICT).
