Lactation Spaces

Going to school as a new parent takes careful planning, especially for parents who are breastfeeding. The following lactation rooms are available at CSU San Marcos for student, staff, and faculty use. 


Gender Equity Center (USU 3200)


The Gender Equity Center has a private lactation room available for all mothers to pump or nurse during the day.  They also have a refrigerator to safely store pumped milk until it's time to go home. The lactation room is available for use by students, staff, and faculty.

The GEC lactation room has a hospital grade lactation pump for parents who want to leave their pump at home.  The pump requires a Medela Lactina Double Pumping System.

If the GEC is closed, USU Building Staff can facilitate access to the lactation space during USU Building Hours.
