Breastfeeding & Lactation Rooms

Lactation Rooms

The Women's Center strives to make UD as inclusive and supportive as possible for all nursing moms. The Center works with Human Resources, Facilities Management, and other campus partners to provide secure lactation rooms for mothers to breastfeed or privately express breast milk. 

All lactation rooms have sinks within the space or nearby. All rooms (with the exception of Alumni Hall) have refrigerators. Rooms are equipped with a comfortable chair, table, electrical outlet, and paper towels. Mothers will need to supply their own pumps and pump attachments.

Accessing the Lactation Rooms

FOR THOSE WITH A UNIVERSITY OF DAYTON ID:

The  lactation rooms are access-controlled through card readers, so members of the UD community can access these spaces using their University ID. 

  1. Read and sign the Terms of Use.
  2. Scan the signed Terms of Use and email to womenscenter@udayton.edu or return through campus mail to zip +0322)
  3. After receiving the Terms of Use, Center staff will add the lactation room access to your UD ID. You will receive an email when access has been added.

Once access is granted, an individual will be able to use any of the spaces on campus for one year, which can be extended, if desired.
