This paper aims to determine the relationship between Islamic values of lecturers and academic staff towards student perceptions on religiosity. This paper established a regression equation model between the two and explained the importance of the Islamic values of lecturers and academic staff to improve student religious behavior and attitude. This study used a quantitative survey method in the form of a relationship survey. The total population was 3,194 students at one of the largest State Islamic Universities in Indonesia. The research sample was taken randomly. A sample of 750 respondents was obtained from four study programs. The instrument used was a questionnaire consisting of 24 statements using a Likert scale.  The results of the study showed that the Islamic-based and the dimensional aspect (Islamic values) of lecturers and academic staff services, had a significant effects on student perceptions. The conclusion drawn was that the dimensions of the Islamic values of lecturers and academic staff had a significant effect on positive perception aspects. The implication of practice or policy is that policy makers are required to improve Islamic-based academic and non-academic services in order to change the character and increase the positive perspective of students.
