Network Drive

Every student, faculty, and staff member receives a "J Drive". This is your personal space on a network server where you can store your important documents and other files. Nobody else has access to your J Drive, except for some IT staff for purposes of backup and administration. The J Drive is intended for academic and work-related use only, so please do not store personal or inappropriate material there.

Your J Drive is backed up every night. If you need to recover a file that was accidentally deleted or mistakenly altered, please contact the Help Desk.

Faculty and staff members have access to a shared location on the network known as the "I Drive." Although each department has an I Drive, those I Drives each point to a different location on the network. Thus, you share the I Drive with others in your department, but members of one department cannot access data belonging to another department. If you do not have an I Drive, please contact the Help Desk and we will connect you to the I Drive appropriate for your department.

Accessing your J and I Drives

If you are a student, you should see your J Drive when you log on to any lab computer or kiosk. If you are a faculty or staff member, you will also have access to your J and I Drives from your own Fitchburg State-assigned computer when you are connected to the campus network.

You can access your J and I Drives securely from off-campus via the Web. Browse to and log in using your Falcon Key. If you log in and are missing a drive letter, please contact the Help Desk.
