In the 21 st century, the number of international students is increasing everywhere and many students are interested in studying at overseas universities since it enhances their academic career. The aim of this study is to design a structural equation model on the impact of gender for the international students to the access and use of ICT into the social integration. The population of this study was international students from two universities in Canada and the questionnaires were distributed via web link to international students. The data was analysed using the WarpPLS (5.0) software. The results of this study revealed that ICT access and use do not have an impact on the integration with peers (social integration) but does have significant impact on the social integration, particularly integration with faculty and faculty support. However, the results further revealed that gender has an impact on the access and use of ICT for the international students in their social integration.
