AbstractIn order to estimate indoor natural radioactivity levels, long and short-term radon tests and ambient gamma dose rate measurements have been performed in several environments of the Faculty of Engineering and in the student canteen of Cagliari University. The measured values were found below the recommended reference levels issued by Directive 2013/59/Euratom. Consistent information about building characteristics, living habits and exposure times were recorded, to be taken into account in the UNSCEAR model. The annual effective dose calculated for each room ranges from 0.004 to 0.628 mSvy−1. The levels of radon concentration measured until now did not exceed the recommended threshold values; additional testing will be performed to ensure full compliance of indoor air quality requirements.
