Lactation Room

Lactation Rooms

Wellesley College provides private lactation areas on campus to support women balancing work with their needs as mothers of young children. In additional, reasonable unpaid break time will be provided each day to an employee who needs to express breast milk for her infant child. The break time will, if possible, run concurrently with any break time already provided to the employee. Supervisors should attempt to provide as much flexibility as reasonably possible to accommodate the nursing mother's needs.

Lactation Rooms. Our lactation rooms provide a secure environment free from intrusion (as well as a small fridge for storage). The two lactation rooms are: Green Hall 140 and Science Building S125A. Nursing mothers will need to provide their own breast pumps.

To ensure privacy, these spaces can only be used by those who have authorization to use the room. Please complete the request form (in Word for easy completion) and e-mail it or deliver it in person to Sandra Murga ( or Room 141 in Green Hall) to obtain access.
