The concept and issue of a smart campus have received broad discussions and are now open knowledge. It typically comprises a network of people, devices (mobile and non-mobile), and 'things' (with connecting abilities) which are powered by the Internet of Things (IoT). A smart campus was designed to enhance education through the utilization of modern state-of-the-art machines that employ the use of recent technologies to bring about effective learning and management of the educational sector. This work aimed at surveying existing works to determine students’ academic performances in a smart campus.  A survey was carried out on publications on smart campus from 2000 to 2021, then on academic performance. It was discovered that infrastructure and resource management attracted more publications while governance attracted the least. It was equally discovered that most academic performance predictions centered on cumulative grade point(average) (CGP(A)) as the parametric determinant.
