When your Elon user account is created, a personal storage space is also created for your use. This space - known as network storage or your personal U:Drive space - is a convenient place to store files in a way that can be accessed from computers both on and off campus. It is also a good place to keep a second copy of important files from your desktop or laptop computer.
Files stored in your network storage space can be easily accessed from any computer on the campus network, but also from off campus with the use of the VPN Client.
Use the links in the Quick Links panel to learn how to access and disconnect from your network storage.
Google Drive is a cloud-based storage space for files, folders, and Google Docs. Students are provided with 30GB of free storage space through Google Drive, which is available for PCs, Macs, iPhones, iPads, and Android devices. For more information, visit http://drive.google.com or download the Google Drive app

The network storage space for each employee of Elon University has a 2GB capacity. Anything placed within the public_html directory located inside your network storage will automatically be published to your Personal Web Space (i.e. facstaff.elon.edu/yourusername).
Student organizations are NOT eligible for network storage space. Even though student organizations do not have network storage space, they are still able to have an organizational web page.
Departments on campus may be eligible for a department network storage location. For more information, please contact the Technology Service Desk.
