Breastfeeding or breast pumping in public can be challenging due to a lack of proper facilities (I’ve personally had to breast pump and breastfeed in public bathrooms, and it is no fun). While breastfeeding laws exist, some mothers may feel uncomfortable nursing in public. By providing mothers with a freestanding lactation suite, they are offering women a safe, private and clean environment to breastfeed or use their breast pump. LSU Gameday lactation spaces provide nursing mothers with a quiet, clean space to breastfeed or pump before going back out to enjoy the game. There are three lactation spaces conveniently located on LSU campus – It would be awesome to get a few INSIDE Tiger Stadium too! 😉
LSU Gameday Lactation Spaces
The Student Union Lactation Spaces are available for faculty, staff, students and campus guests during home gamedays. The four spaces available have a privacy lock, outlet, chair and cleaning supplies.
Saturday – 8:00 am – 11:00 am
Users must check-in with the information desk on the second floor of the Student Union (across from CC’s coffee). Users will be escorted to the space. The space cannot be reserved.

The UREC is available for use on all home games that start at 6 pm or later. All LSU faculty, staff and students are permitted to use space with proof of LSU ID.
Saturday – 9:00 am – 1:00 pm (for a 6pm kickoff or later. The UREC is not open for earlier start times)

Hours: Users may only use the space after entering Tiger Stadium for a game. See Gameday Timeline for gate openings. Once a user enters Tiger Stadium, re-entry is not allowed.
