Access to lactation rooms on campus is an important part of supporting parenting students. Lactation rooms are private, safe, and clean with a place to sit, place your belongings, and have access to plug in breast pumps. Sinks are provided in the room or nearby. Students who use a lactation room are expected to make their own arrangements for refrigeration, including sealed containers, and proper storage.
Lactation rooms are located in the following spaces:
- J. Paul Leonard Library - LIB 267
- Mashouf Wellness Center - MWC 115
- Marcus Hall - Marcus Hall T336
- Student Advising Center, ADM 229
