La Trobe University supports and values the importance of parents having the time and space to provide food for their babies, whether this be by expressing milk or breastfeeding/chestfeeding.
Each of our campuses has a team that supports the operation of a breastfeeding/chestfeeding room. If you have any questions or would like to arrange to access one of the rooms, please get in touch with us!
We aim to provide a breastfeeding/chestfeeding-friendly environment and have breastfeeding/chestfeeding rooms to support parents in their return to work and study.
Accredited by the Australian Breastfeeding Association, our rooms are fully equipped for this purpose. Our rooms provide;
- Lockable door and private space
- Comfortable chair/bed
- Table within reach
- Nearby kitchen/sink and fridge
You can find the nearest toilet with baby change table here.
