Access your files

You can use MyFiles to access files from your Personal Z: drive, Shared Departmental X: drive and the Research File Store using any web browser when you are off-campus.

You will only be able to access files from your Shared Departmental X: drive using MyFiles if your Head of Department has decided that the department’s X: drive can be made available off campus. If you have any queries about this you should discuss it with your X: drive Coordinator in the first instance.

    • Research File Store
