Campus Stairs

The Nursing Mother's Lounge is located on the first floor of the Mesa building in Room MB 1101 and is available for use by students, faculty and staff of The University of Texas Permian Basin who are nursing mothers.

The University sponsors a lactation room 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 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 nursing lounge provides the following amenities:
  • Couch
  • Refrigerator
  • Table
  • Electrical Outlets

*Users are responsible for bringing their own supplies.
