Lactation Room Available in the John C. Pace Library

In an effort to support nursing mothers, UWF now offers an area for individuals needing a private place to express breast milk. The room is located on the third floor of the John C. Pace Library on the main UWF campus and is open to faculty, staff, students, and visitors. In order to use the space, one may check out the key using a Nautilus card at the Circulation Desk during the Library’s regular operating hours.

Anyone who wishes to verify whether the room is available or already in use prior to traveling to the Library may call ahead to the Circulation Desk at 850-474-2414. Though the key may be checked out for up to two hours, patrons are asked to return it when they have finished using the lactation room so that others may access this space.
