Breastfeeding/Chestfeeding Facilities

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
  • PowerPoints
  • Nearby kitchen/sink and fridge

You can find the nearest toilet with baby change table here.
