4 pagesDate: September 25, 2020


Air quality inside learning environment of schools and colleges is vital for students’ health and their academic performance. This study aims to assess the particulate pollution in Lecture hall complex of a technical institute situated at Roorkee city in north India. Coarse, fine and submicron particles (PM10, PM2.5 & PM1) concentration was monitored in indoor as well as the outdoor environment of the complex. The hourly average concentrations for PM10, PM2.5 & PM1 was found in the range of 137-141, 70-86 and 44-67 μg/m3, respectively. The indoor-outdoor ratio of PM concentrations for all microenvironments was found greater than 1. Fractional analysis of various PM sizes has described the contribution of different PMs from various indoor and outdoor sources. Results of the present study would find implication in exposure analysis and help the regulating authority to develop the policy framework on indoor air quality
