Lactation Rooms for Nursing Mothers

Post Date:01/26/2018 1:00 PM

As an educational institution, offering a private, clean & comfortable space where lactating mothers can express breast milk, meets the state law, offers our children optimum health and provides the campus’ breastfeeding mothers support and encouragement to continue breastfeeding.

There is a private lactation room at Student Health Services, located on the lower level of our Student Services Building room 101. It is available on a first come, first serve basis. If this room is not available or you are at the Marina Education Center or our Public Safety Training Center, any faculty or staff member can assist in finding a private room for you on campus.

We hope you enjoy the use of our lactation room, but remember, you have the LEGAL RIGHT to breastfeed anywhere on campus as you see fit.* 

*Right to Breastfeed in Public (1997) – Assembly Bill 157 Civil Code Section 43.3. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, a mother may breastfeed her child in any location, public or private, except the private home or residence of another, where the mother and the child are otherwise authorized to be present.)
