The aim of this study is to identify the Internet use among Malaysian undergraduate students. A pencil-paper questionnaire with items on demographic information and Internet use information was randomly distributed to the samples of this current study. Samples comprised of 1389 students from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (21.13 ± 1.68 years old). The result of this study indicated that the majority of the students (97.4%) had a personal computer. They spent a long time on Internet, i.e. 6.60 (SD=4.93) hours per day and had more than seven years of Internet use experience. SNS (e.g. Facebook) was found as the most popular and attractive Internet activity among the nine Internet activities. The significant gender difference was shown in the time spent where male students spent more time on MMORPG, while female spent much more time on email, search/googling, shopping, and instant message.
