Lactation and Changing Spaces


If you are a nursing or pumping parent attending school, we provide on-site lactation stations. All lactation stations provide a private, secure, clean space for you to feed your baby or express milk.

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act contains a provision related to expressing breast milk at work. We support chestfeeding parents and regard this legislation as recognition of our lactation program.
