Lactation Room for Students and Staff

GRCC supports students and staff who have a need for lactation accommodations. Two options are available for those who wish to take advantage of GRCC lactation rooms. 

Main Campus

Cook Hall has a private, secure, Raider card only accessible room; to gain access, you will simply need a one-time activation of your Raider card.  This can be accomplished by contacting Jodie Boelens in the Health Sciences Resource and Tutorial Lab, 401 – Cook Academic Hall.  The preferred method of contact for this purpose is through GRCC email at or by phone at (616) 234-4320

DeVos Campus

Sneden Hall has a lactation room across from Sneden 206; it does not require Raider card authorization but may be locked from the inside when in use.

Any questions about the lactation accommodations can be directed to GRCC Title IX Office, at (616) 234-3924.
