Lactation Support

Lactation Accommodations

Syracuse University provides a number of lactation rooms to support nursing mothers returning to work, school, or campus. Nursing mothers, including students, faculty, staff as well as visitors are welcome to use the lactation rooms. Each room offers a clean, secure, and private space for women who need to express milk during their time on-campus. All rooms are equipped with seating, table, and electrical outlets near the chair.

All lactation room users are expected to clean up after each use of a room.

Below is a list of rooms with details about each location, how to access, and accommodations. Each room may be used for 30 minutes at a time.
