Nursing Mother Rooms Now Available Across the University

In its continuing effort to foster a family-friendly environment, the University of Miami is pleased to announce the opening of dedicated rooms at the Miller School and on all UM campuses to support nursing mothers upon their return to work. Details of the program, which is open to faculty, staff and students, can be viewed in the Break Time for Nursing Mothers policy.

Nursing Mother Rooms are now open at the following locations:

Miller School of Medicine campus
• Dominion Tower, 1400 N.W. 10th Avenue, suite 302, room 301A
• Rosenstiel Medical Science Building, 1600 N.W. 10th Avenue, room 7166
• University of Miami Hospital, 1400 N.W. 12th Avenue, seventh floor, room 780

Coral Gables campus

Rosenstiel School campus
• Science and Administration Building (SLAB), 4600 Rickenbacker Causeway, suite 110

Additional locations will be announced in early April.

Faculty, staff and students who need a private place to express milk may reserve space on a first-come, first-served basis and should complete a Nursing Mother Accommodation Request Form. Once completed, Equality Administration will coordinate with the nursing mother to identify a space closest to her work site. A master calendar is available to schedule employees who have desired times to use a nursing room. Nursing mothers are, however, encouraged to use their personal office space or space identified by their department when possible.

For questions regarding scheduling or related policy, please contact Equality Administration at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

A positive nursing mother experience improves work-life balance and is beneficial to the University. We welcome your suggestions as we identify the best approaches to continuously improve this program.
