The Office of Equity will serve as the primary point of contact for lactation spaces on the CU Denver | CU Anschutz campuses. Our office will work with you to get connected to resources that best suit your needs.
If you are bringing a visitor to campus who needs lactation access, direct arrangements for space accessibility will be made for the visitor depending on campus location for the event/conference/meeting. To coordinate appropriate arrangements for visitors needing lactation access, email the OE at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note*: Images of the lactation spaces displayed are examples of lactation room types. Not all lactation spaces will look the same.
Register with the Lactation Connection! If you are pregnant or need to utilize a lactation space on campus, please fill out our "Pregnancy and Parenting Form." Completing this form allows for our office to request badge access and enrolls you into our EMS Lactation Space Reservation System. This form also assists our office with getting you connected with the correct office for any pregnancy related accommodations.
