Pumping at School

I will be returning to college in the fall and am planning to pump for my son. I live too far from campus and can’t go home to pump between classes. What should I do or who should I ask for help?

Many universities don't have specific regulations to support students who breastfeed and pump. But there are laws that protect you as a breastfeeding mother. Look into your school's policies. Then discuss this with someone in student affairs or the health center. The Student Accommodation Form attached below can be used as a guide. Many colleges have policies to help mothers be successful with parenting and studying. If your school doesn't have a specific lactation room, you can ask about rooms that aren't being used, like offices, dorm rooms, or lounge areas.
