Lactation resources

The University is supportive of nursing mothers and has resources and policies to support employees. Human Resources provides workplace accommodations for nursing mothers. Information can be found in the employee handbook. The University has dedicated lactation rooms on campus:

  • Mary Reed Building
    A lactation room and a breast pump are available in the Mary Reed Building. For information about locations and scheduling, please contact the Human Resources Reception Desk, 303-871-7420,
  • Ricketson Law Building
    The SCOL provides a lactation room on the first floor and convenience areas in the women's restrooms on the north side of the building. The lactation room is located in room 115A. It has a refrigerator and other amenities, including a breastpump. To use the SCOL breastpump, mothers will need to provide their own accessory kits compatible with the Medela Symphony pump. Kits may be purchased at the SCOL SBA bookstore, though availability may be limited. The lactation room is available to students, staff, faculty, and alumni. For access information, contact the Student Affairs office at 303-781-6184.

If you would like access to this room, please contact the Front Desk in the AHSS Dean's suite room 457 or call 303-871-4460. This office will issue you a key for the duration of your need. Please note that since more than one person may have a key at any given time, we will have an "occupied" sign available that those using the room may wish to place on the door knob.
