UTAS is a breastfeeding-friendly workplace

Breastfeeding is welcomed and actively supported at the University of Tasmania.

Staff and students are supported to manage parenting responsibilities and their work or study commitments. UTAS does this by providing:

  • A variety of flexible working options
  • Paid parental leave
  • Breastfeeding rooms on campuses
  • On-site childcare on some campuses

Parents are welcome to feed their children wherever they feel comfortable on campus.  Private spaces are also available to breastfeed or express milk.

The University is committed to fostering an inclusive culture that promotes equality, values diversity and maintains a working, learning and social environment in which the rights and dignity of all its staff and students are respected. UTAS is proudly accredited as a Breastfeeding Friendly Workplace by the Australian Breastfeeding Association and has been since 2013, benefiting all members of the University community.
