Abstract: Noise pollution can affect human health, according to research done by the World Health Organization (WHO), the European Union and the Spanish National Research Council, noise pollution can cause temporary deaf, hypertension Symptoms, and affects concentration and learning processes. In this paper, we estimate noise levels affecting a pilot area in an institution of higher education located in Cali - Colombia. We used the simulation of noise maps method, in which the cartographic information of the study area is analyzed using the ArcGIS ® software, next, results are feed to the software SOUNDPLAN ® with the French model "NMPB-Routes-2008". Results indicate that sound pressure levels are those established by law (resolution 0627 issued by the Environment, Housing and Territorial Development Ministry ) in Colombia for type B sectors, which is the area where the institution is located.
