This study analyzed the use of information and communication technology (ICT) made by students of a Spanish university for study-related and leisure purposes. It also explored the effects of its use on students’ academic activities and their performance, as well as on their psychosocial adjustment. The results revealed that 14% of students made excessive use of ICT for their studies (more than 4 h per day). In terms of leisure activities, the figure for excessive use rose to 18.6%. There were no differences by sex or subject area. It was found that the younger the students, the higher the use of ICT, and the higher this use, the poorer the academic performance (objective and subjective) and the greater the psychosocial maladjustment.
