The study was designed to investigate the relationship between social influence and facilitating conditions and the behavioural intention to use, and actual use of ICT tools among registry staff of University of Ibadan, Oyo State. Five hypotheses were formulated and tested at 0.05 level of significance. Survey design was adopted. Two hundred and sixty registry staff participated in the study. Data were obtained with a validated structured questionnaire. Collected data were analysed using frequency distribution, Pearson’s correlation, multiple regression and moderated multiple regression. Findings showed that there is a significant relationship between social influence, facilitating conditions and the intention to use ICT among the registry staff. Significant moderating effects of gender, age, experience and voluntariness on the relationships were not all confirmed. The relationship between social influence and behavioural intention to use ICT is not moderated by gender and age, but by experience and voluntariness of use. Also, the relationship between facilitating conditions and use behaviour is not moderated by age, but by experience. The University of Ibadan Management should create an enabling environment that will facilitate and support constant use of ICT tools for official work by the registry staff and also fund staff training and retraining in relevant ICT skills.
