More information on lactation resources on campus is available from The MIT Human Resources Center for WorkLife and WellBeing.

The Oasis

Located next to the 2nd-floor reading room, the Oasis is a zone for contemplation, meditation, or taking a break. The community is invited to unplug and separate from their studies. Visitors can enjoy comfortable seating and quiet in this minimal technology space.
