Due to the chrysalis of the advanced ubiquitous technology and their capabilities in assisting students to engage and occupy with the ubiquitous learning, most undergraduates have owned an au courant technology and using them ubiquitously either for learning or leisure purposes. Hence, this study is to identify the types and levels of ubiquitous technology use among undergraduates from one of four Malaysian Technical Universities. This will actually represent how undergraduates at higher learning in Malaysia use ubiquitous technology and the level of use of ubiquitous technology. This will assist the university’s administration in preparing a path towards implementing a ubiquitous learning environment at the university. The data of this study is gathered through a 5 point-Likert scale questionaire, with the reliability of 0.819 for levels of use and 0.901 for types of use. The sample is undergraduates studying at Information, Communication & Technology Faculty and statistical analyses of data collected are performed by SPSS 17. Results show that majority of the students is at routine level of ubiquitous technology use (mean = 2.74, SD = 0.484), meanwhile, the central type of ubiquitous technology use is for inquiry and general use, followed by communication use, expression use and construction use.
