In recognition of the importance and benefits of breastfeeding for mothers and infants and in compliance with applicable law, CUNY supports the rights of employees and students who are nursing mothers. CUNY is dedicated to accommodating the needs of nursing mothers for break time and a private space to express breast milk on campus. This lactation policy incorporates the new lactation laws in New York City, Int. No 879-A and Int. No. 905-A, effective March 18, 2019 and supersedes the CUNY Lactation Guidelines promulgated on March 23, 2015.

The CUNY School of Labor & Urban Studies has established Room 1801 on the 18 Floor as an available lactation room. Students have access to the lactation room based on availability and on a first-come, first-served basis, and need to schedule access ahead of time.

To gain access to the room, please contact or call (212) 642-2081.
