In this study, concentrations of radon in residential buildings were investigated in order to establish the pattern of variation within the buildings in these environments. The target rooms were the bedroom, bathroom/ toilet, living room and kitchen. One hundred and thirty-seven (137) rooms were selected using multi-stage sampling protocol. Solid state nuclear track detectors, CR-39, were employed for the measurement so as to obtain average radon concentration in each room. Radon concentrations vary from 3.63 – 12.17 Bq/m3, 3.09 – 11.62 Bq/m3, 3.43 – 13.26 Bq/m3, and 4.09 – 13 Bq/m3 with mean of 6.75 ± 0.09, 6.89 ± 0.08, 6.44 ± 0.09 and 7.43± 0.09 Bq/m3 respectively in the bedrooms, bathrooms/ toilets, living rooms and kitchens. Therefore, the pattern of radon concentration variations observed in this study is of this order:  bedroom < bathroom/toilet < kitchen < living room.
