Network Storage


Trinity maintains several network storage drives where users may store and access data. These drives are backed up nightly so that files can be restored if needed.

 

Users

Trinity faculty, staff, and students

 

Getting Started

Trinity faculty and staff using Windows computers issued by Trinity will come with some of the following drives already mapped and available. 

  • These network drive mappings may be found by clicking the Start menu button and selecting Computer from the list.
  • NOTE: If your Trinity-owned workstation is an Apple computer, you will need to connect to these servers manually by clicking on Go in the Finder menu bar and selecting Connect to Server... from the dropdown.

Trinity students and any employees using personal computers must connect to these servers manually while also on-campus and connected to the Trinity network (or using VDI to access the Trinity network from off-campus). You can find instructions for mapping a Windows computer to a server here and connecting to a server using macOS here.
