This policy applies to nursing individuals including students, faculty, staff, patients, community members and visitors.

Tufts University is committed to supporting and meeting the needs of nursing individuals returning to work, school, or visiting the campus. Any nursing individual who is a member of the Tufts community (faculty, staff, students, patients, visitors, third parties or community members) can use the lactation rooms. Faculty and staff are entitled to reasonable breaks to express breast milk as well as the sufficient time to get to the lactation room.

The lactation rooms offer privacy, cleanliness and comfort. Each room has a comfortable chair, a table or desk, and sufficient electrical outlets near the chair. Each nursing individual must provide their own pump. Although refrigerators are not provided in each room, we will assist you in locating a refrigerator within your department or workstation to store the milk. Nursing individuals must provide adequate storage containers and proper labeling. They may also bring their own small cooler to store the breast milk.

All lactation room users are expected to tidy up after each use. Please allow adequate time for cleanup and trash disposal within each visit.
