Lactation Network at Clemson University

Clemson University Lactation Network

Clemson University promotes a family-friendly work and study environment for mothers and their infants. As a part of Clemson’s goal to provide employees, student workers and students with work/life balance, the University strives to offer clean, private space for new mothers to nurse and/or express breastmilk and flexible opportunities to do so during the work/school day.

The Clemson Lactation Network is a combination of:

  • Dedicated wellness/lactation rooms
  • Public spaces where one might be able to express milk
  • Reservable space for you to express milk (e.g., conference room)
  • Space volunteered by individuals

Clemson University has several dedicated wellness/lactation rooms available:

    1. Sullivan Center (map)
      • Multiple rooms (*In response to flu season and COVID-19, we are temporarily moving this room OUT of JFSC to reduce the risk to the new moms. The room available will be 535A and will be open from 8:00-4:30 daily. If someone needs to use it, there will be a sign in the room that they can hang on the doorknob to let folks know they need privacy when they are inside.)
