Some tremendous technological advancements in the present 21st century have culminated in far-reaching developments in the administrative system of universities, especially in the developed nations. This work investigated the relationship between students’ e-management variables such as automated admission, online course registration, computerised hostel allocation and university administration effectiveness in Nigeria. It adopted a descriptive research design. Three null hypotheses were postulated and tested at the .05 level of significance. The population for the study comprised all 27,826 full time undergraduate students out of which 1600 participants were selected through stratified random technique. A self-designed validated and reliable (r = .87) questionnaire was used for data collection. Findings from the study revealed a weak, positive and significant relationship between university administration effectiveness and automated admission (r = .171; p < .05). There is also strong, positive and significant relationship between university administration effectiveness and online course registration (r = .891; p < .05). Finally, strong, positive and significant relationship is also discovered between university administration effectiveness and computerised hostel allocation (r = 0.721; p < .05). Premised on the study findings, the article recommends among other things that the university authority should ensure that websites are being updated regularly, and are more user-friendly. Also, the university should re-consider the installation of free Wi-Fi on campus to enable better internet connectivity for students and staff.
