Abstract


Occupants’ perception towards the value of indoor environment has always been a crucial issue. Having a good quality in an indoor environment influences the way occupants’ behave in their daily activities. Moreover, there are differences on the gender perspective on how they perceive the value of indoor environment. However, gender perception towards rain noise effects in relation to students’ activities has been overlooked until today. From the findings it can convey beneficial information regarding the quality of life towards students’ living. Conclusively, the overall finding reveals those female students are more annoyed compared to the opposite gender.


Keywords: Rain noise; metal deck roof system; perception; gender differences; student activities
