This study based on Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) and also looks at the moderating role of gender in the above relationship. Structured questionnaires were used to collect data. A total of 120 students responded to the survey. Results from the study shows that perceived usefulness (ß=0.29, p<0.01), perceived ease of use (ß=0.25, p<0.01), and subjective norm was (ß=0.15, p<0.05) was positively related to computer usage. The findings also revealed that gender was not a moderator in the mentioned relationship but can be considered as significant independent predictor of usage. Male students exhibited higher usage of the computer compared to the female students.
