WUC has finished some remodeling to improve features and make the place more student-friendly! We just finished a new, active Deschutes Lounge on the upper level in some of the former ASWOU space.



We have added a Lactation station within the upgraded All-Gender Restroom. This single-use restroom and Lactation station are located on the 1st floor of the WUC next to the Calapooia conference room. Lactation Station in All-Gender Bathroom
