Campus Lactation Rooms

Lactation Rooms are available for use by students, faculty and staff of the University of Michigan-Dearborn who are nursing mothers. The rooms are NOT intended to provide space to rest for those with medical conditions that are highly contagious from contact with contaminated surfaces (e.g. influenza, stomach viruses, common cold, pink eye, etc). Individuals with those types of medical conditions should rest at home and seek medical care, as appropriate. The University sponsors lactation/quiet rooms in various buildings campus-wide to promote work/life balance for greater morale, satisfaction, and productivity within the University community. For assistance or additional information, please contact the Office of Human Resources and Institutional Equity by phone at (313) 593-5190 or by email at
