DEI is very pleased to announce the creation of a nursing room in the Ken and Julie Michael building for ICRAR staff and students to use!

The room is located behind the reception area in the ground floor of the building atrium, repurposed to be a private space for nursing mothers. The door to the room can be locked, and the windows have been frosted to ensure privacy. The room contains a nursing chair, an electrical cord, a side table, a microwave and also a small refrigerator.

The nursing room will remain locked at all times, and the key can be collected from Lisa when required. A booking system has been set up for this room (see instructions below), so just like other meeting rooms within the building, please contact Lisa or Tracey to book the nursing room for you.

For reference, please read the University Policy on Children on the University Campus, regarding the university policies for bringing children onto campus. I have also attached the new guidelines for booking the nursing room. These will be made available on the ICRAR intranet.
