Network Resources & VPN Access

Last updated 07/11

Network Resources

Students, faculty and staff are all provided with access to a minimum of two network
drives. These drives are located on HPU servers and are backed up regularly. We
encourage all users to save any University related work to at least one of these
folders. Your O: Drive is your personal share space and can be accessed while on
campus or while off campus using VPN. The W: Drive is a public drive most often
used for personal websites or for providing public access to documentation.
