NC State has 20 lactation rooms throughout the campus. The list of campus lactation rooms below provides the locations of the rooms, information on how to reserve the rooms and contact information for accessing the rooms. See Lactation Support Guidelines for information about the requirements for lactation spaces at NC State and guidelines regarding paid break time, as well as the NC Office of State Human Resources policy.
The NC State Design and Construction Guidelines require that each new or renovated facility of at least 40,000 sq. ft. must have one lockable lactation room, which may be a dual-purpose room. In addition, the NC State Council on the Status of Women, in collaboration with the Architect’s Office and the Office of the Provost, began a project in 2012 to identify space for lactation rooms in existing buildings throughout the campus. The goal is to provide a minimum of one dedicated lactation room in each campus neighborhood.
If you have questions or need assistance with Lactation Spaces on campus, please contact Lisa LaBarbera-Mascote, liaison with the Council on the Status of Women, at 919-515-2012 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
