Mapping Network Drives [iOS]

Network Drives are used to store and access documents related to your organization by network users. These instructions are for mapping the network drives on an iOS device which will give you access to your personal or a department's shared folder. 

M: drive: This folder is typically used to store personal files for faculty, staff, and students. 

N: drive: Folders located in this location on the file server containing many subfolders for the course, department, and workgroup file sharing. 

Note: If you are off-campus you will need to connect to VPN before you map or access the network drives.
