Connecting to the Home Drive – Windows 10

The home drive (typically the H: drive) is a network drive in which certain UVM affiliates can access and store saved files on the UVM network. These can be accessed via the online portal or the  folder can be mapped directly to the user’s machine. This guide shows the process on Windows 10.

To access these drives on Windows you must be connected to the UVM network via the UVM wifi/wired connection or you must be on the UVM VPN.

  1. Open File Explorer and click on This PC

  3.  Insert the correct file path for the home drive. The file path should be \\files.uvm.edu\home\netID. The “Reconnect at sign-in” box should be checked. This will ensure that the drive automatically reconnects to the folder when logging in. As for the “Drive” option, any letter can be chosen, though the typical drive letter is “H:“. Click Finish.

  4. Enter UVM netID credentials in the box that appears when trying to connect. If “Domain: CAMPUS” is not below the password box the campus\ must be added in front of the NetID.
