Arizona State University’s Breastfeeding Support Committee has developed this website to provide nursing mothers with resources to support their breastfeeding goals. Whether mothers are planning to pump while on campus, or are able to bring their infant with them, the intent is to help nursing mothers by the provision of private designated spaces on campus.

Currently, there are five clean, comfortable and private designated spaces for mothers to express their milk: one on the Tempe campus, three on the Downtown campus, and one on the West campus.. These spaces provide electrical outlets, comfortable chairs, and nearby running water. This website provides you with their locations and, if needed, reservation information.
