Lactation Program for Students, Employees and Third Parties

CSUF is committed to providing faculty, staff, students, visitors and job applicants with a private, secure, convenient and sanitary space to use for lactation. They are “Rejuvenation Spaces” and they are shielded from intrusion from others. The Rejuvenation Spaces contain a comfortable sofa or chair, access to electricity, and a table near or attached to a chair that will support a lactation pump. The space provides access to a sink and refrigerator in close proximity to the employee’s workspace. If there is no refrigeration in close proximity to the workspace, working mothers should notify the WoMen’s CenterOpens in new window to locate refrigeration. If not, the University may provide another cooling device suitable for storing milk, such as an employer-provided cooler. However, working mothers expressing milk are expected to make their own arrangements for providing sealed containers for proper storage.
