We're monitoring the ventilation of spaces at UQ to enhance the safety of our staff and students. Good ventilation is one of the factors that UQ is investing in to protect our health.

Our indoor ventilation status spreadsheet contains information about the ventilation status and any remediations undertaken for our spaces.

Statuses will be updated weekly as we conduct further monitoring.

Definitions for data in the Reasons action required column are as follows: 

  • Not applicable: Space occupancy and ventilation rates are within design limits.
  • Higher occupancy than ventilation design: The number of people using the space is greater than the occupancy level the ventilation system is designed for. 
  • Space change of use: The space is being used for different function other than the original design. This may include adding partitions, equipment,  additional furniture or increasing occupancy without changing the ventilation design.
  • Unbalanced outside air: The amount of outside air being supplied to the space is not as per the ventilation design rates for the space.
