UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology


Maternity room

The IoN Athena SWAN Maternity Room is located on floor 7 (rooms 709 and 710) of Queen Square House.

What is it?

  • It is a room for pre- or post-partum women to use when they are feeling unwell, need a rest or need to express breast milk
  • The room has a sink, fridge, water dispenser, small table, four chairs and a long sofa.
  • The room is lockable from the inside and has an “in use” sign on the outside of the door.

How do I use it?

  • The room does not need to be booked
  • Access is via the reception in Queen Square House. Anyone with a valid UCL card can use the room. If you don’t have a Queen Square House access card, that’s OK, just sign in at the front desk and the guards will give you an Athena SWAN badge (which should be handed back when leaving).
