Information for Breast Feeding Mothers
If you are a breastfeeding mother and need to feed your baby, or if you need to express milk during your time on campus, there is a room available at the Elgar campus for this purpose. If this is not a convenient location for you, alternate arrangements can be made. To make use of the room, please refer to the following procedure. Procedure
Register your name with our Welfare Officer via reception at Student Support Services on 9286 9891. You will need to provide your student ID number which is located on your student card. If you would prefer to visit in person, Student Support is located on the Nelson Campus, next to the cafeteria.
Once you have registered, you will be able to access the room by swiping your student ID card near the door. You will need to allow 24-48 hours for swipe access to be activated on your card, and your card will be programmed with an end date (when you anticipate that you will no longer need to use the room).
If you need to store expressed milk, there is a small fridge located in the room. This fridge is used for no other purpose, however security of any stored milk is at the mother's risk, and any milk stored must be clearly labelled.
