The University of Hawaii at Hilo has a clean, spacious, and cozy lactation room at the Campus Center. The room has several relaxing couches, small tables, a stool, and electric outlet for pumping.
This nursing room also has a lock, is very quiet, and comfortable, so breastfeeding and breast pumping mothers on campus can reserve and use this room when they need to express breastmilk.

To make reservations for the room or check available time slots, contact the Campus Center office during work hours at 932-7365. At the arranged time, check in first at Campus Center, room #210."

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.
