Georgia Institute of Technology recognizes the importance of breastfeeding for mothers, children, families, and the community at large. The Institute also acknowledges the need to support employees and students in order to sustain the breastfeeding relationship when they return to work or study. As such, Georgia Tech has taken measures to ensure faculty, staff, and students access to designated space conducive for nursing, breastfeeding, or expressing milk.
The designated nursing rooms on campus are located at following areas:
1) Tech Tower (Administrative Building), First Floor Women’s Lounge
(closed for building renovations)
225 North Avenue
2) Georgia Tech Student Center, Third Floor Women’s Lounge
350 Ferst Drive
3) Scheller College of Business, Room 4144
800 West Peachtree Street
4) Klaus Advanced Computing Building, Room 1136
(please contact for key card access) 266 Ferst Drive
5) Women's Resource Center (coming soon)
Each nursing room offers a clean, secure, and private space for mothers who need to nurse a baby or express breast milk during their time on campus. All of the rooms are equipped with a glider rocker or a chair with a foot stool, table, appropriate lighting, refrigerators, cleaning supplies, magazines, and information on breastfeeding. Additionally, there are Medela hospital grade breast pumps provided in each room; accessories will need to be provided by each individual user. Each nursing room is operated by the building manager of the specific building, and sponsored by Institute Diversity. We do our best to keep all items and information up-to-date.
