Queen's University Breastfeeding Friendly Spaces

A network of breastfeeding friendly spaces has been established on Queen’s University campus.  While an individual’s right to breastfeed in public is legally protected, some individuals may prefer to breastfeed or express breast milk in private for personal or cultural reasons.  These designated spaces are open to all individuals as a safe and quiet place to breastfeed and/or use a breast pump. 

Each Breastfeeding Friendly Space has:

  • Quiet, clean and sanitary spaces identified by common signage
  • Comfortable seating, electrical outlets, and nearby washroom
  • Educational information for families

Currently all rooms are designated as a private space, as they have the capacity to be locked for additional privacy. The private spaces are open to individuals who need to attend to the needs of their child, this includes mothers and fathers.



Faculty, Staff or Students who have questions with regards to the breastfeeding friendly spaces or accommodations, should contact: Dr. Katie Goldie katie.goldie@queensu.ca.

The network of Breastfeeding Friendly Spaces on Queen’s University campus was initiated by the Queen’s School of Nursing, in partnership with Human Rights and Equity office, SGPS, Ban Righ Centre, and KFL&A Public Health.
