The Mothers' Room

Mission

The Mothers' Room was established to support working families at Loyola University Maryland. This room is a private, quiet and peaceful space to let a nursing mother express breast milk for her nursing child for one year after the child’s birth each time such employee has a need to express the milk.   Be sure to speak with your supervisor about the amount of time you’ll need to pump your milk, how it can fit into your workday schedule and how you can make up any extra break time that you take.

Location

The Mothers' Room is located on the lower level of Jenkins Hall, room 016.

Access and Use

  • Nursing mothers may check out a key for up to  one year after the child’s birth by visiting Jenkins Hall Suite 220 or calling x2345.

  • Please respect all the families who need to use this room by keeping the space clean and limiting use to lactation only.
