Athens, Ga. - The University of Georgia's Tate Student Center has added a designated private room for nursing mothers.

The space is one of 14 lactation rooms on the main campus, with others located at the Veterinary Teaching Hospital and on the Health Sciences Campus. A map of UGA lactation rooms is online at http://hrdocs.uga.edu/map-campus-lactation-rooms.pdf.

Tate's lactation room is located on the fourth level adjacent to the Student Veterans Resource Center. Access is available through a keypad lock; users may get the code by visiting or calling the Office of the Dean of Students.

"Previously, we would accommodate nursing mothers by making temporary space available on an as-needed basis," said Jan Barham, associate dean of students and director of the Tate Student Center. "We're pleased to join the university's efforts to enhance resources for women by designating a permanent lactation room."

The Tate Student Center is a department within UGA Student Affairs. For more information, call 706-542-7774 or see http://tate.uga.edu. For information about women's resources on the UGA campus, see http://women.uga.edu.
