Mapping an EHE Network Shared Drive

EHE OIT provides access to several network shared drives. These drives should map automatically when you are on campus. If you are off campus or if the drive does not map automatically you may need to manually map the drive. 

For instructions for using the VPN to connect to resources off campus please see article: Connecting to the EHE VPN.
