Main page content

Recognizing the importance and benefits of breastfeeding for student and working mothers, the University of Washington Tacoma campus provides lactation rooms across the university.  The campus Lactation Station/Breastfeeding room is located in GWP 410 and MAT 204A. This room is for UW Tacoma faculty, staff, students, and guest use. The room is to be used on a drop-in basis. There is no need to schedule a time to use it, if the room is empty it is available for use. 

All SAFC funded campus Lactation Station/Breastfeeding rooms have refrigerators for storage.  In some cases, when all rooms are occupied we can help you to find a quiet/private space.  Please contact us at uwtcfss@uw.edu or 253-692-4901.   

We appreciate your patience as we learn and grow ensuring that we encompass the intersectionality of the human experience.
