This lactation room is located on the first floor next to Women's room.
Each campus nursing room also has a log book to facilitate room coordination with other users. Signng up in the log book does not "reserve" a pump for one staff memeber's use alone. More than one staff person may need to use the room during the same time slot. It is important to communicate about overlapping schedules and to respect th needs of other users. If you need more log sheets for the rooms, or have any wuestions please contact Staff & Family Programs at the contact information below.
The private lactation rooms, which are spread across the University and Health System campus, require prior registration for room access, which is granted through an approved DukeCard ID. The rooms are open to Duke faculty, staff and students, who must schedule time in a room in advance.

1:(r)An employer shall provide—
(A) a reasonable break time for an employee to express breast milk for her nursing child for 1 year after the child’s birth each time such employee has need to express the milk; and
(B) a place, other than a bathroom, that is shielded from view and free from intrusion from coworkers and the public, which may be used by an employee to express breast milk.
2: An employer shall not be required to compensate an employee receiving reasonable break time under paragraph (1) for any work time spent for such purpose.
3: An employer that employs less than 50 employees shall not be subject to the requirements of this subsection, if such requirements would impose an undue hardship by causing the employer significant difficulty or expense when considered in relation to the size, financial resources, nature, or structure of the employer’s business.
