Student network storage explained

What is student network storage?

Your Student Network Storage is file storage space provided on the central UWA network. You have up to 2 gigabytes of storage set aside exclusively for you to use.

You can access your Student Network storage in three ways:

1. Via the H: Drive and T: Drive on student computers in subject libraries and faculty-based general purpose computer labs. When you save to 'My Documents' your work will be saved to the H: Drive. Ensure you save your work in 'My Documents' as work saved to the desktop or in the temporary download folder (typically used by browsers when opening email attachments) will be erased when you log out of the PC.

2. Through UniDrive access via your own computer/device or

3. UniDrive access via web portal from any internet browser.

You have access to two different areas within your network storage:

  • H: Drive - this is your personal home drive, which can hold up to 2 gigabytes (2GB) of data.
  • T: Drive - this is a shared space which will automatically give you access to course-related content for the units you are enrolled in.

Student Network Storage is separate to Student Email Drive. Student Network Storage is your university computer folders on all devices. Student Email Drive has more capacity and can be used collaboratively.
