Radiation is a natural part of the environment that people interact continuously, and radon is one of the most important sources because of its abundance and mobility. Due to gas form, radon can reach and accumulate in living places easily. Inhalation of radon and itsprogenies is animportant riskfactorfor healthhazards.Accuratemeasurement ofradonlevelsisquiteessential for the dose evaluation of radon exposure in buildings. In this study, radon activity measurements have been performed by using AlphaGUARD portable radon detector at several locations in Akfirat campus of Istanbul Okan University. Annual effective doses were calculated by using ICRP regulations for various exposure periods.
