“The policy was enacted to provide information to breastfeeding employees and students regarding their rights to a reasonable break time, as well as a space to breastfeed or express breast milk at UConn,” UConn spokeswoman Stephanie Reitz said in an email.

This policy mandates that employees, students and faculty at the Storrs, UConn Health and regional campuses must have access to a “clean, private (the ability to be shielded from view and free from intrusion), comfortable space with electrical outlet, chair, table for breast pump and nearby access to clean running water,” according to UConn.
