Michigan Tech supports mothers who choose to continue breastfeeding after returning to work or classes by offering several lactation spaces on campus.

Each room offers a clean, secure, and private space for women who need to express breast milk. All rooms are equipped with comfortable seating, a table or counter space, and ample electrical outlets near the chair. Pumps are not provided.

View a map of the lactation spaces on campus. These rooms are not scheduled. Each space is equipped with an "In Use" door sign. Please keep the space neat and orderly and report any issues to Benefit Services:
