What is a Network Account
When you are using a computer on campus, you are required to log into the campus network. By logging in, you have access to all of your network drives and folders, including your P-drive (your personal drive). The P-drive is a place where you can store important files and the files will be backed up by IT, so you will never lose anything. In addition, you can access your P-drive from anywhere on campus or even from home. So, work you do in one location can be retrieved in another location. We strongly encourage you to keep all of your work in a network folder to ensure that nothing is lost if your computer is ever to crash.
Access Your Network Drive(s) from a non campus computer! Everyone has a P-drive (personal drive) where you can save files to the network. All network folders are regularly backed-up, so you can be confident that any work saved to the network is safe. You can access your network folders from any campus computer or from your personal computer in the residence halls or from home: PC Instructions, MAC Instructions.
