Cloud computing is seen as the delivery of computing services such as servers, storage, databases, networking, software, analytics, and intelligence via the use of the Internet “the cloud” to offer faster innovation, flexible resources, and speedy retrieval processes. This research work examined how cloud computing can bring about positive changes to students’ academic information storage, retrieval, and sharing in Nigeria tertiary institutions. 100 students were sampled among all tertiary institution students in Lagos State. The Data collected were analyzed using simple clustered columns (Bar chart). Overall findings indicated that there was high agreement towards the fact that cloud computing is accessible free and can be accessed by an authorized owner or users, and it is always available at any time of need. Conclusions drawn from the findings suggested that the use of cloud computing has really helped students positively in their academic information storage, retrieving, and sharing purposes. Recommendation implored teachers to intensify further on the application of cloud computing in the classroom and how it is to be used to improve their information accessibility and sharing.
