Accommodations

The purpose of lactation accommodation is to provide nursing mothers who are employees or students of the university (or those visiting the campus for an APU sponsored event) with a private place to express breast milk.

This accommodation complies with applicable state and federal laws related to provision of accommodation for nursing mothers. All nursing mothers who are university employees or students may reserve a private lactation room (see the APU Employee Handbook (PDF) for policy 6.11: Accommodations for Nursing Mothers in its entirety). These lactation locations are private, secured, shielded from view, and they are not located in a restroom or common area.1 Learn more in our Pregnancy and Lactation Accommodation Q&A (PDF).

Azusa Pacific University is not responsible for the integrity or security of breastmilk stored in any refrigerator on campus and does not guarantee the safety of any storage method used.

Azusa Campus

APU Lactation Rooms on West and East Campus can be reserved by anyone within the APU community (or visitors) who register through the Lactation Room Access Registration Form. After completing the registration form, APU students, staff and faculty will be given direct access to the room reservation calendars and access code for the remainder of the academic year. All other registrants (i.e., visitors to the campus) will be contacted by the Title IX Office (typically within 1-3 business days) in order to complete their reservation.

Regional Campuses

Women who wish to reserve lactation room space at one of APU’s regional campuses should inquire with the front office staff who will be able to arrange appropriate accommodations.
