Why does my toilet sometimes bubble?

Starting yesterday, my toilet occasionally makes a bubbling noise. I have not witnessed actual bubbling, but I can definitely hear it, and some water does splash out of the bowl. The bubbling occurs sporadically. It happens even when nobody has used the toilet recently. I have not noticed a pattern to its occurrence, so I would say that it is random. There is no clog that I am aware of. The toilet flushes fine. Sewage does not bubble up into the toilet.
I live in an apartment building. I have lived here for about 2 weeks, and this problem started yesterday. A building maintenance person came by to look at it and couldn't figure out what's wrong, but he said that as long as the toilet flushes properly, there is no problem. He said something about old pipes, but that doesn't explain why this started yesterday.
