Guidelines for Lactation Room Use

  • You are responsible for working with your supervisor to arrange for break time to pump and may contact the Office of Human Resources — Benefits for questions regarding break time.
  • Visitors must have a CMU sponsor to use the space.
  • These rooms are not scheduled, and multiple nursing individuals have access to the space. Please use the "Lactation Room in Use" Door Sign [pdf] to identify that the room is in use.
  • Carnegie Mellon does not provide pumping equipment. Should you choose to leave any items in the room, know that these are not the responsibility of Carnegie Mellon.
  • Please keep the space neat and orderly. If you notice that dispensers are out of stock or if there is a cleaning issue, please report the issue to Equal Opportunity Services.
