Nursing Mothers

TJC supports employees and students who choose to breastfeed or pump while on campus. We will make reasonable accommodations for the needs of those who choose to nurse, and provide a reasonable amount of break time for employees. Employees should talk to their supervisor to arrange for a flexible schedule that allows for breastfeeding or pumping.

Lactation Rooms

Rooms are available for use by students, faculty or staff of TJC who are nursing mothers. These rooms are rooms with locks that are shielded from view and free from intrusion by others. These rooms are not multiple-user bathrooms.

Room Locations

Currently these rooms are available on the second floor of the Rogers Nursing and Health Sciences Building and on the second floor of the Rogers Student Center.

Availability

In some cases, you can reserve a room for specific times; in other cases the rooms may be available on a first come, first served basis. You must request access to the lactation rooms. To request use of a room, please use the access authorization request.

Department policies will vary regarding use of the rooms and how to account for your time. Please be sure to consult with your supervisor before making arrangements to use a room.
