This study sought to assess the basic facility needs of students in order of preference with respect to their library, ICT laboratory and classrooms in five private universities within Ogun State, Nigeria. Primary data was collected with the aid of questionnaire administered to 676 students in five different private universities within Ogun State, Nigeria. After which, the demographic information of the respondents and their basic facility needs were compiled using descriptive methods of frequency table and mean computation. Analysis showed that electricity supply, furniture and space per student were the most critical basic needs of students in the selected universities. The study recommended that the National Universities Commission (NUC) as well as the providers of facilities in universities take note of these basic needs in order to ensure their constant provision so that students can have more conducive learning environments. Finally, there was the need to sensitise students on the need to be security conscious particularly within the academic environment.
