Particulate matter is one of the pollutants that have adverse effect to human health such as respiratory and cardiopulmonaryillness. Based on the studies, transportation has been identified as one of the major source of particulate matter emission. The objective of this project is to measure the particulate matter concentration level around fee university campus. There are 5 selected sampling points which are at the mam gate, student village area, student room, lecture hall and administration department. The device used to measure the particulate matter concentration is MiniVoI 1100 Low Flow-rate Air Sampler. The average flow rate used for the device is -3 L/min. Duration for the sampling is for 24 hours. The result indicates that the highest particulate matter in at the main gate area this is due to the active transportation activities. The major sources of the particulate matters in the campus area are from vehicles and also from windblown dust, road dust and construction activities. Outdoor air quality has been measured to be poorer than the indoor air qu&liiy.
