This study surveyed technology support for non-academic staff in southern Nigerian tertiary institutions: its depth, breath and impact. Three hypotheses were posed which guided the execution of this study. A โ€“ 25 item researchers โ€“ constructed instrument called Technology Support for Non-Academic Staff Opinion Survey (TSNSOS) was used for data collection. With the assistance of stratified random sampling technique, six tertiary institutions were drawn from which four hundred and twenty staff (420), (70) from each institution were selected to constitute the sample. Data collected were subjected to statistical analysis using parametric statistics. Results from the analyses revealed that the depth and breadth of technology support for non-academic staff was minimal and as such, its impact was not significant. Consequent upon this result it was recommended that tertiary Education Administrators should make technology support for non-academic staff more available so as to produce positive result in the administration of tertiary institutions.
