Diaper changing stations and lactation room

Diaper changing stations are available in the Gender Inclusive restroom located on each floor, just north of the circular staircase.

Lactation Room

The Parks Library Lactation Room (186 Parks, Floor 1) is available on a first-come, first-served basis during the Library's open hours. 

Users of the Lactation Room are responsible for:

  1. Obtaining their own pumping systems or containers. 
  2. Locating a refrigerator or cooler to safely store expressed breast milk.
  3. Cleaning their own pumping systems.
  4. Leaving the Lactation Room clean and in good order.

We ask that those using the Lactation Room be respectful of the needs of all women that use the room, by not using it as study space beyond the time needed to express milk. Please report any problems in the room to Circulation staff when returning the key.

For additional suggestions and recommendations regarding breastfeeding, and for additional Lactation Locations on campus, please visit Iowa State HR's webpage on Lactation Spaces.

Iowa State University and the Iowa State University Library are not responsible for any problems that may result from use of the room.
