Lactation Services

The Jean Nidetch Women's Center now has five lactation rooms for faculty, staff, and students to pump or breast feed in a private, clean, and quiet space. We provide a rocking chair and a refrigerator for daily storage. In the JNWC Lactation Room, we also have a Medela Lactina Electric Plus Pump for you to use with your own attachments.

  • SSC-A — Room 255
  • Student Union — Room 316 (Ask the front desk for the Lactation Room key)
