Lactation Support

Syracuse University knows that continuing to breastfeed and the expression of milk after returning to work requires extra planning, patience and support. The University supports nursing mothers by offering guidance, accommodations and resources. Nursing mothers, including students, faculty, staff as well as visitors are welcome to use the lactation rooms.

The University’s policy on Nursing Mothers in the Workplace is currently under review. In the interim please reference the New York State Policy on the Rights of Employees to Express Breast Milk in the Workplace [PDF] to understand employment-related rights and obligations and what support is available to University employees.
