This paper presents a study of IAQ in toilets located in the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering building, Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM). This study was conducted to determine the level of gas pollutants exist in the male and female toilets. The important IAQ parameters considered in this study are SO2, NO, and CO2. The measurements were conducted during break hour and taken using air quality monitoring. The result indicated that SO2 exceeded the threshold value and this could have adverse effect on inhalation such as asthmatic. Finally, the existing SO2 was affected by mechanical ventilation mode, while the existing CO2 was more generated in female toilet.
