Lactation Room

In support of our students and employees who are nursing mothers, three lactation rooms are available for use. The rooms offers a secure and private place for the mother to express milk for their nursing children.

To make arrangements to use one of the lactation rooms:

  • Employees should contact Human Resources (HR) via phone at (734) 973-3684, email, or in person in Business Education Building, room 120
  • Students should contact the Student Resources Center (SRC) on the second floor of the Student Center building or via phone at (734) 677-5102.

The lactation rooms are available for both day and evening hours.

Guidelines for using the Lactation Room

  • There are three lactation rooms, one in each of the Crane Liberal Arts and Science Building (LA), the Business Education Building (BE), and the Morris Lawrence Building (ML).
  • Space is available for one nursing mother. Room use will be scheduled by HR or the SRC based on request.
  • You may access up to three times per day for approximately 15-20 minutes each visit. If additional time is needed, please discuss your individual needs with either the SRC or HR when you initially request to use the room.
