Clemons Library has a lactation or New Mother's room on the 3rd floor - 311. The key can be checked out from the Clemons Desk. The room has a sign and an "occupied/unoccupied" sign.

A full list of all lactation rooms on grounds can be found here: http://www.hr.virginia.edu/uploads/documents/media/Lactation_Rooms.pdf. More information about lactation rooms on grounds can be found here: http://www.hr.virginia.edu/news-events/news/nursing-mothers. FYI: This HR program is focused on employees, not students.

Alternatives are:

  • The Health Sciences Library has two lockable, gender-neutral, single-stall restrooms in our Cabell Room (lower level) that are family-friendly (they are quite spacious) and can be used for pumping or nursing. The Cabell Room is accessible when the library is open. More info: http://news.hsl.virginia.edu/?p=6555
  • The Dean's Office offers a Mothering Room to students in New Cabell Hall. They can contact the Dean's Office via Aimee Steussey, ans5a@virginia.edu, 434-924-4027. Aimee will double check that the person is a UVA affiliate, then they can get access to the room (usually kept locked).

"The Breastfeeding Medicine Program at UVA Medical Center is available to provide support for the employees of UVA. This team consists of Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLCs) and Pediatricians that provide 7 day a week coverage." "There is a Nursing mothers lounge on the ground floor of the Main Hospital in Room G441. It is open 24 hours a day, and has 2 pumping/ nursing stations. The room is accessed via ID Badge. To gain access, contact the UVA Breastfeeding Medicine Program with your UVA ID# . Call 982-3316. Please allow 24 hours for your request to be fulfilled."

The UVA Hospital is located at 1215 Lee Street, Charlottesville, VA. Google maps says it is a 13 minute walk from Alderman library.

  • If the request is urgent AND the requester has a battery-powered pump, you can try to suggest one of the 5th floor bathrooms, which lock and are large enough to put a chair inside -- but there are no electrical outlets. Another possibility is papering over the windows in a reservable study room in Clemons.
