This research pursuit the objectives of testing and measuring the level of indoor environmental quality in the lecture theatres across the university; analysing the challenges of the learning component that affects the learning process and appraise the learning space configuration that best suits the learning process of the students in various lecture halls. This research employed empirical research method involving questionnaires and scientific measurement of the acoustic level, thermal comfort level, lighting and particulate matter 2.5, 1.0 and 10. The research results show that the various learning spaces have good orientation and are adequately ventilated. The thermal comfort of most of the lecture halls reduces in the afternoon. The furniture arrangement within the lecture spaces reduced the level of interaction amongst the students and between lecturers and students. Therefore, this paper recommends effective artificial cooling must be introduced in the afternoon and the ergonomics within the lecture halls must be made flexible.
