Mapping your T: and U: drives


The WEC department has network file storage for multiple uses. Our T: Drive is used for shared documents and lab folders. Our U: drive is your personal folder for file storage. If you are a new student and wish to have a U: Drive folder, please send an email to Tom Barnash to request one.

Mapping the T: Drive

  1. If you are using a personal laptop, you must connect to the UF network using the VPN software before mapping to a drive or accessing a shared printer. You can obtain the Cisco VPN software and directions here.
  2. Once connected to the VPN, Open up your Start Menu, Right-click on Computer, and select "Map Network Drive..." from the menu.

  6. You will be prompted for your username and password, you need to enter UFAD\gatorlinkusername in the username box, and your gatorlink password for the password. Login Box
  7. Select Finished.
