Before you begin

  • If you are off campus, you will need to establish a VPN connection before mapping a network drive.
  • If you are on campus and connecting via wireless, make sure to use IU Secure and not AT&T wireless when mapping a network drive.
  • If you are on campus and connecting via a wired port at the tech desk, you must register your computer at IU Messaging Services before proceeding.

  1. From the Start menu, right-click Computer or My Computer.
  2. Select Map Network Drive....
  3. From the "Drive:" drop-down menu, choose the appropriate drive letter (e.g., O:, W:, H:, or S:).
  4. For the appropriate drive, enter the folder path; replace username or your_department with your username or department name:
    • O: drive (faculty and staff shared):
    •   \\sb-inft-fs2.ads.iu.edu\home\username
      
    • W: drive (campus shared):
