The Women*s Center offers a range of resources to the WSU Community, including food assistance, activity space, and skill building for leadership development. Many of our resources are student-driven and community supported, and we see them as an integral part of a seamless learning and living environment.
Lavender Lounge and Lactation Space
This recently updated space provides a private, comfortable place to feed a child or use a breast pump. It's also available for meditation, prayer, quiet contemplation, meetings, interviews, cat nap and as a casual lounge area when not otherwise in use. If you need to reserve it for a specific time, you may do so using our online reservation form or contact us directly. You're also welcome to walk in at any time.
Comfy couch, shelving, nursing pillow, Clorox wipes, a kitchen sink nearby, white noise machine, blankets, pillows, privacy film on windows, lock the door from the inside, lamp lighting, and a power strip near the chair and couch.
“This is great. I really appreciate your help. We feel so blessed and thoughtful living in this community full of love and caring.”

Introducing, the new Cougar Food Pantry location!
Rosario's Place no longer holds or accepts food donations as WSU has centralized all pantries to a new campus food pantry: The Cougar Food Pantry! The Cougar Food Pantry is located here at the Washington State University, Pullman campus (CUB Ground Floor across from The Bookie). The pantry offers a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables and nonperishable items to students experiencing food insecurity.
About Rosario's Place
Rosario's Place assists WSU student-parents with supplying their children with wonderful and generous items that brings happiness to families. Rosario’s Place provides FREE items for children up to 6 years of age. Visit us!
Thanks to the overwhelming support and contributions of our campus and community (including WSU student organizations, the Cougar Food Pantry, and Pullman community members), Rosario’s Place has been in operation for 4 years! The Women*s Center accepts both monetary and supply donations to keep Rosario's Place operating.
