Indecent dressing has become a recurring issue among the university undergraduates. Therefore, the study investigated indecent dressing and among university undergraduates in Southwest, Nigeria. Descriptive research of the survey type design was adopted for this study. The population of the study consisted of all the undergraduates in Southwest Universities in Nigeria. The sample for the study was made up of 600 students selected through simple random sampling technique from three universities, these are Ekiti State University, Adekunle Ajasin University and Ladoke Akintola University. From these universities 200 students were selected each through simple random technique. Questionnaire was used to collect data from the respondents. A research question was raised and four hypotheses were tested at 0.05 alpha level. Data collected were analyzed using descriptive that include the frequency and percentage and inferential statistics that involves the use of Anova, Duncan Multiple Range Test and t-test. The result revealed that there was significant difference in indecent dressing and among undergraduates in the three higher institutions. The second and third hypotheses that deal with age and religious affiliation indicated that there were no significant difference on the basis of the two variables. The fourth hypothesis also indicated that there was no significant difference in indecent dressing on the basis of gender. It was found that indecent dressing is common among university students in the southwest. It was also found that age and religious affiliation did not affect indecent dressing among university students. Therefore, it was recommended that schools should put in place and enforce dress code to reduce the incidence of indecent dressing among the undergraduates. Counsellors and religious organizations should ensure that good moral standard is ensued among the undergraduates especially as it's relates to the way they dress.
