The Office of Human Rights, Equity and Accessibility has set aside a room in Chrysler Hall Tower for breastfeeding mothers.
It is meant to provide a space for parents to feed their children without distraction, says Amanda Emery, a political science major working as the office’s outreach co-ordinator.
“Although breastfeeding is perfectly acceptable anywhere on campus, the room allows privacy and a quiet space for those who are searching for it, not to mention the amenities allow storage throughout the day,” she says.
Among those amenities are a refrigerator, microwave oven, electric kettle and comfortable seating, with a washroom nearby. The room — 320 Chrysler Hall Tower — is kept locked. Users may obtain electronic passes from the receptionist in room 325.
