The Front Room provides a variety of hot and cold coffees, teas, and other beverages, along with a selection of snacks.

Lactation Room (Third Floor - Baker 353)

Located along the same hallway as the Dean of Students office, the LGBT Center, and the Veterans and Military Student Services Center, it is across for a single occupancy bathroom. The room includes a glider and ottoman, white noise cancellation machine, microwave, refrigerator, lamp, mirror, and sink. The room remains unlocked unless occupied and is available for use during Baker Center's open hours. The room has a Medela Symphony Plus Pump. In order to use this hospital-grade, multi-user pump, users will need to bring your own attachments, which can be purchased on Amazon or through Medela's suppliers. A video (link below) explains the various functions of the Medela Symphony Plus, and is recommended viewing before using the pump for your first time. Click here to view video.
