The University of Northern Iowa is committed to support student parents.  The University provides a private lactation room in Gilchrist Hall for mothers to use to express milk. The room number is 114, and is located directly across from the Registrar's office on the first floor. The Lactation Room is furnished with a chair and a small table. It also has a small refrigerator reserved for the specific storage of breast milk, a small sink for washing, and microwave for sterilizing.

Students may request a key for the lactation room in the Dean of Students Office.  Please complete the online Key Request Form.  You may also find more information about support for nursing mothers on the human resources services website.
