Mapping Network Drives [macOS]

Network Drives are used to store and access documents related to your organization by network users. These instructions are for mapping the network drives which will give you access to your or departments 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 course, department, and work group file sharing.

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