Lactation Rooms

Any nursing person who is a member of the Tufts community (faculty, staff, students, and visitors) can use the lactation rooms provided in various locations around our campuses. The Tufts Office of Equal Opportunity has resources for nursing and maintains a list of Tufts lactation rooms.

Arrange for an ad-hoc space

If none of the dedicated spaces meets your needs, you can arrange to use an ad-hoc space elsewhere on campus. Please contact Amin Fahimi Moghadam, OEO Accommodations Specialist in the Office of Equal Opportunity, 617-627-6363. He will identify a space for you to use and arrange for you to get access to it when you need it.
