Accessing network drive from off campus

If you access your network drive from off campus, you may be used to double-clicking a shortcut on your desktop that takes you directly to your network drive on campus. Since this link is no longer functional following the change in our network this week, here is how to set up your new connection:

Once your VPN connection is established,

  1. Right-click anywhere on your desktop. Select New > Shortcut.
  2. Type “\\austin.utexas.edu\disk\law\” as your new location and click Next. The backslash key (\) can be found above the Enter key.
  3. You will then be prompted for your username and password. Your username is “AUSTIN\Your UT EID”. For example, if my UT EID is mwaitley, my username would be “AUSTIN\mwaitley”. Your password is your UT EID password. Check the Remember my password box. Then click OK.
  4. If desired, rename your shortcut. Click Finish to create the shortcut.
