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

Policy Statement

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, staff and students are entitled to reasonable breaks to express breast milk as well as the sufficient time to get to the lactation room.

Lactation Rooms

Lactation rooms offer privacy for nursing individuals, and each room contains a comfortable chair, a table or desk, and sufficient electrical outlets near the chair.

Although refrigerators are not provided in each room, OEO can assist you in locating a refrigerator within your department or workstation to store the milk. You must provide your own pump, storage containers and proper labeling. You may also bring your own small cooler to store the breast milk.
