Academic performance of a student is one the main areas to be devoted to and implemented by the university. This study examined whether and how the technologies provided will affect students’ academic performance among university students. A sample of l47 UUM undergraduate students was analyzed from their Wi-Fi usage. The students’ Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) was used as a measure of academic performance. The data were analyzed quantitatively by using web 2.0 category analyses and Spearman correlation of Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS). The result indicates that Wi-Fi usage does not affect student academic performance. Additionally, the study of Wi-Fi hardcore users also found that the usage does not affect students’ performance academically. Furthermore, based on the students CGPA who have CGPA between 2.00 to 2.99, there have two categories of Wi-Fi usage that will affect their performance which are downloading and online game categories.
