Kean University recognizes the importance of breastfeeding and the health benefits to both mother and child. As such, Kean University has dedicated clean, private, and comfortable locations for women who wish to express breast milk on both the Union and East campuses. These lactation rooms are located in close proximity to restrooms and provide a comfortable chair with a table arm. The lactation rooms are secure and require a key for entry, and are accessible to all Kean University students.
Please note that the University does not provide refrigeration for expressed milk or a place to keep storage equipment. Students are encouraged to bring a cooler bag for proper storage of expressed milk.
