Access Network Drives on Personal Computer or from VPN

If you are on campus using your personal computer, or if you're off-campus and connected to our GlobalProtect VPN on any computer, follow the instructions below to connect to your network drives. Mapping network drives is not a one-time process. Each time you log out and log back in to your computer, you may need to re-map the drives you would like to access. If you simply close/lock your computer and then sign back in, you shouldn't need to re-map the drives.

As an alternative, you can log into Filr in your browser to access your files through web interface.

NOTE:  If you are off-campus and connected to VPN using a university-owned Windows computer, your computer will automatically create the H:, J:, S: and T: drives. This process may take as much as 60 seconds, and drives may appear with a red X under 'This PC' heading in File Explorer, but should be accessible anyway.
