LACTATION SUPPORT AT CITY COLLEGE


In recognition of the well-documented health advantages of breastfeeding for both infants and mothers, San Diego City College provides a clean, secure, supportive environment to enable breastfeeding students and employees to express their milk during school/work hours.

San Diego City College supports breastfeeding mothers by providing two campus locations with private, comfortable rooms for them to nurse, or express milk for their babies. Neither a pump nor refrigerator is provided. Mothers are responsible for transportation and proper storage of milk, and for bringing their own equipment, storage containers and cooler.

LACTATION ROOMS:

M-24, Student Affairs Building: M – Th, 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM and Fridays, 8 AM – 3:00 PM

A-180, Student Health Center: M and Th, 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM, Tues and Wed., 8-6, and Fridays 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM 

Both private locations are equipped with:

  • A comfortable couch/chair
  • Electrical outlet
