Campus Lactation Rooms

Iowa State University has more than 30 designated lactation rooms on campus. These rooms are available for use by all staff, faculty, students, and visitors to our campus. Individuals are responsible for providing personal breast pumps and accessories. Several of the lactation rooms listed below are located in the lounge space of women's restrooms. The lactation room within these areas is protected and private from the restroom area. Each room has an electrical outlet, chair, table, and most have a lockable door. Ideally, a mother needing to use the lactation room for expressing breast milk will feel comfortable and not have to ask others to utilize the space. A few rooms remain locked, so contact information is listed for you to obtain a key or code to access the room. When more than one breastfeeding mother needs to use a designated lactation room, mothers should negotiate milk expression times that are most convenient or best meet their needs.
