Lactation Rooms

The University of Missouri – St. Louis provides private lactation rooms on campus for students, faculty, and staff so as to support women balancing their work and study commitments with their needs as mothers of young children.  Each campus location offers a clean and secure environment for women who need to pump or nurse while on campus.

Breastfeeding mothers must bring their own pump as the University of Missouri – St. Louis does not provide one.  Mothers may also bring their child if they prefer to breastfeed in a private room.  Room use is limited to 60 minutes.  Mothers will need to make their own arrangements for storing milk, such as an insulated lunch bag with ice pack.  Mothers must also take everything they brought in with them when they leave.

In order to gain access to the rooms, nursing mothers will need to register by completing the form located https://orgsync.com/90860/forms/272147.  Once the form is processed the mother will be notified via UMSL email that her swipe access to the lactation rooms has been setup.  By default mothers will have access to the rooms for 6 months. At the end of 6 months mothers can request additional time. Upon entering the rooms the mother should click the privacy lock button on the inside of the door lock. This will allow the mother privacy while using the room. Please respect the privacy of other mothers by knocking before sliding your card to access the room.
