Pregnancy & Parenting Accommodations

Students who are expecting a child or nursing and are seeking accommodations, should contact the Office of Accessibility Services. To request services/accommodations:

  1. Complete your request for services intake form AND
  2. Schedule a meeting to discuss potential accommodations

Accommodations will vary on the individual students’ needs and possibly complications of pregnancy and childbirth. Examples of accommodations may include: 

  • A larger desk/ chair
  • Access to a lactation room
  • Breaks during class, as needed
  • Leave for delivery of child
  • Course policy adjustments, such as modified attendance, flexibility in assignment submission, and making up work and/or exams (to the extent reasonable, and in conjunction with the course instructor and program standards)

Lactation Space

Nursing students have the right to reasonable breaks to express breast milk as well as a private, convenient, and secure place to do so. SUNY Niagara provides a lactation room to help support nursing parents.

Centrally located on the first floor the Learning Commons in room D-116 near Tim Horton’s and an All Gender bathroom, this room is equipped with a rocking chair, sink, table, fridge and outlets. The room can be locked from the inside and has a vacant/occupied sign on the door.

If the location that is listed above is not convenient, or you need a location identified at an off-campus site, Accessibility Services will also work with students to find appropriate space.
