Lactation Spaces

Southern Connecticut State University recognizes the importance of creating a family-friendly environment for students, employees, and the community, and as such aims to provide a supportive environment for breastfeeding and chestfeeding students and employees. The Breastfeeding-Friendly Campus Initiative broadens support to include students and visitors to campus who may wish to feed or express breast milk.

Lactation Spaces

Southern has several lactation spaces that include amenities such as privacy curtains, storage space, access to electrical outlets, a microwave for sterilizing accessories, and breastfeeding information.

Buley Library

Room 117 is located on the first floor of the Library at the center of campus. This room can be reserved through an online room reservation system. This room is locked at all times and access is provided at the Circulation Desk. This room has two pumping stations, each with a comfy chair. For privacy, there are two hospital-grade curtains. There is also a microwave to sanitize pump accessories along with other supplies available for your use.

College of Health and Human Services

Room 115 is located on the first floor of the CHHS building. This room has a changing station, a chair, a refrigerator, and cabinets filled with resources and supplies to make breastfeeding or pumping a comfortable experience on campus. The door requires a key to be unlocked; please email Vancourm1@SouthernCT.edu to reserve this space.

Wintergreen Building

Room 115 is located on the first floor of the Wintergreen Building on Wintergreen Ave. Many individuals enjoy utilizing this space in between work, appointments, and/or class. The room has three chairs, a changing station, and a cabinet filled with resource materials and supplies for use. The Wintergreen room is always open and locks from the inside when in use. At this time, there is no reservation system in place for this space.

Temporary Lactation Spaces

Breastfeeding Champions also have designated several temporary lactation spaces across campus to provide more accommodations to meet your needs. All Breastfeeding Champions have a sticker in their office or on their office doors. This sticker indicates support for breastfeeding and chestfeeding individuals on campus.
