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

In order to gain access to the rooms, nursing mothers will need to register by completing the form located http://umsl.edu/go/nursingmother.  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.

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.
