Connecting to Network Drives

Network drives can only be connected to by on campus users. You must be using the campus network to connect. Particular locations of interest include:


T Drive

  • Gives faculty and staff the capability to store files on a common drive that everyone can access.
  • Although access is available, certain files and folders, still have restrictions on who can view the material.  
  • Connection Path - \\winfscommon\common


S Drive

  • Gives each user their own individual drive to store material.
  • This drive cannot be accessed by other users, so any files that need to be kept personal can be kept on the S drive.
  • Students have a 500 MB quota
  • Faculty and Staff have a 3GB quota   

   To find which winfshd server you are on go to

  • Type CMD then press ENTER.
  • This will bring up the command prompt.
  • Type net user username (e.g. abc123) /domain

Connection Path –\\winfspr[1-4]\users$\username
