Lactation Information and Locations on the UW-Madison Campus / Office of Child Care and Family Resources



As we seek to provide a welcoming environment for all members of the campus community and guests, we have provided some "Lactation Friendly" locations across campus.

Each of the lactation rooms provides private space where lactating mothers are welcome to pump or nurse. Most of these spaces are equipped with a comfortable chair, a small table and an electrical outlet. Some rooms have lockers if you care to store your pump on-site.

Each lactation room is operated by the building manager of the specific building. We do our best to keep this information up-to-date, but occasionally information changes without our knowledge
