The study of air quality today is an essential tool to know how they interact different biotic and abiotic factors and take appropriate action to maintain an optimal balance in terms of environmental health. The aim of this study was bacteriological monitoring air in Autonomous University of Puebla-Mexico, in the area of the treatment plant waste water and bioterio. Bacteriological monitoring air was performed in Autonomous University of Puebla-Mexico for a year, quantified and identifies isolates, and the study of resistance to antibiotics. Bacteriological sampling was performed in the treatment plant and in the bioterio allowed the capture of a total of 8862 and 3460 CFU/m3 respectively. Were identified Klebsiella (26%), Enterobacter (24%), Enterococci (21%), Proteus (12%), Escherichia (9%) and Citrobacter (8%). With respect to antibiotic resistance test showed greater resistance to bacitracin and vancomycin and in general all isolates were sensitive to ciprofloxacin. The environmental monitoring reflecting the situation at different times of the year, regions and even between intramural or extramural environments, provide relevant information to take appropriate action, influencing the quality improvement in environmental health.
