If you know of other available stations on campus or are willing to offer space in your office for either pumping or breastfeeding please let us know!
Are you a nursing mother on campus in need of a private place to use a breast pump or to nurse your baby? Here are some places on campus that have space available. Please note that they will do their best to work with you to meet your needs but availability cannot be guaranteed.
While some women prefer to nurse their babies in a private, quiet, distraction-free environment, it is important to stress that this is a choice, not a requirement. Kansas law (K.S.A. 43-158) gives women the legal right to nurse her baby in public. Visit La Leche League International for specific, detailed information.
KU cares about helping nursing mothers feel welcome on campus and have the resources they need to balance work, school and family. For more information, please consult the KU Policy on Lactation Support: https://documents.ku.edu/policies/Human_Resources/LactationSupport.htm
Please contact the individuals listed below for more information and to make arrangements. Please note that they will do their best to work with you to meet your needs but availability cannot be guaranteed.
