This paper investigates how Information and Communication Technology (ICT) can improve reading habits among university students. We also investigated the influence of home culture, school culture and disposable income on reading habit. Our main objective was to assess the effect of ICT on the reading habit of particularly university students in Uganda. This study provided a unique contribution through empirical evidence that ICT indeed impacts one’s reading habit and thereafter propose policy implications that may improve the reading habit of students through ICT interventions.
