Abstract

Extreme environmental noise beyond 65 dB can be adverse to human health, living comfort and the environment itself. In a university environment, student activities will be less disrupted if the locations of the activities are sufficiently away from noise sources. Less study had been done in noise pollution subject around Malaysia recently especially in university which needs less noise for students to be concentrated and hospital area which requires peaceful surroundings in order patients to be recovered. The objective of this study was to determine the level of noise pollution in the National University of Malaysia. We conducted the study in dental faculty regarding more noise in a dental laboratory and the location of the faculty itself which is surrounded by Hospital Kuala Lumpur complex. Questionnaires were distributed to 170 participants from convenient sampling selected students (128 undergraduate students and 42 postgraduate students) in faculty of dentistry, National University of Malaysia, KL Campus. From the study, we found that 96.5% of the students in dental faculty UKM KL campus experiencing noise pollution mostly at the time between 10 am until 2 pm (65.3%). But it was detected as low noise according to 84.7% participants. Since the vehicle is the first causes of noise pollution that we found in this campus area, so in the future may need new regulations in term of vehicle limitations.
