Lactation/Quiet Room (JGB 1.105)
Lactation/Quiet Rooms (LQR) are available for use by students, faculty and staff of The University of Texas at Austin who are nursing mothers or who require rest for medical reasons. The rooms are NOT intended to provide space to rest for those with medical conditions that are highly contagious from contact with contaminated surfaces, e.g. influenza, stomach viruses, common cold, pink eye, etc. Individuals with those types of medical conditions should rest at home and seek medical care, as appropriate. The University sponsors lactation/quiet rooms in various buildings campus-wide to promote work/life balance for greater morale, satisfaction and productivity within the University community. Additionally, under the Affordable Care Act, employees may take reasonable break time for purposes of breast feeding and be offered a private setting for this purpose.
The Jackson School of Geosciences Lactation/Quiet Room is located in JGB 1.105.
Note that the first floor of Jackson Geological Sciences Building is in the basement. You can take an elevator down one level from the entrance across the East Mall from RLP. Please lock the door when using the Lactation/Quiet Room for your privacy.
The University of Texas Institute for Geophysics has a Family/Quiet Room (first come, first serve) located at ROC 3.117 – JJ Pickle Research Campus.
