Women's Center Lactation Resources Nursing Image

As a student-parent you may register for lactation room use for yourself if you are lactating, or for your spouse to use for lactation purposes if she needs to pump milk or breastfeed while on campus.

We encourage you to express your needs to us so that we can accommodate you and expand this important lactation program for students. If you need lactation support, send an e-mail with "student lactation support" in the subject line. Simply provide your name and the best location for you to pump milk. If there is not a lactation room close to your place or study or work, contact us.

In consideration of sanitation it is not advisable for students to use restrooms for pumping or breastfeeding, contact us so we can assist you.

Lactation rooms

The UCSD Women's Center is happy to provide a lactation room and this important service for breastfeeding women in the UCSD community. Lactation rooms are located across the UCSD campus.

The lactation room at the Women's Center provides a safe, warm and welcoming environment for all breastfeeding parents. Come and breastfeed on a comfy rocking chair overlooking the Mandeville Center. The lactation room also provides a refrigerator, microwave, sink, changing table and toys for tots. See lactation facilities for a list of rooms that UCSD currently offers. Register with the Women's Center, which can answer questions, provide information packets, issue access codes to rooms with omnilocks, and send e-mail as new facilities become available.
