Tips for finding a different space:

We understand that the nursing spaces available may not work for your schedule, location, or for a variety of other reasons. Please know that Student Social Services would be happy to work with you and your academic program to find a suitable accommodation. 

  • Consider asking your department if there is an empty office that can be used.
  • Reach out to your advisor or professor if you feel comfortable. Some buildings may have nursing spaces we're not aware of. 
  • Recognize that you're not the only student who has this need. UMSL cares about their students and we want to help you succeed.
