Nursing Mothers

The university supports meeting the needs of nursing mothers in the workplace. Nursing mothers can make arrangements with their department managers for reasonable break time and an appropriate place for expressing breast milk. Rooms for this purpose are now available on each campus. See the full policy in the Documents section.

Contact the Oklahoma Breastfeeding Hotline for general questions about nursing: 877-271-MILK (6455).

Norman

A nursing mothers room, or lactation room, is available for university students and employees on central campus in Carnegie Hall, Room 306. Nursing mothers can use the room for expressing breast milk or for nursing their child in a quiet, comfortable environment. The room features a pumping workstation, comfortable chair, and some basic supplies such as baby wipes, paper towels, and cleaning products. It is located near a women's restroom. Mothers need to make their own arrangements for storing milk and sterilizing pump parts.

The room is available from 7am-10pm, Monday-Friday. New or expecting mothers should complete this request form to gain access to the room. OU Health Services at 325-4611 ext. 41777 can assist a new mother if other accommodations need to be made because of the distance to Carnegie Hall.

HSC

Accommodations for nursing mothers have been made in buildings across campus. A list of rooms and access information can be found in the Documents section.
