Storage and Backup

QUB file storage is a centrally administered secure area on the servers for staff and students to store files.  It can accessed on- or off-campus. 

On-Campus: Log into a local computer using your student/staff number and password (or ads\staff no)

Off-Campus: Use Citrix (see Remote Working for details)

This will give you access to a Network Drive (Q) which typically consists of:

  1. Q:\Staffhome (or Stuhome) - a home drive used to store personal files 
  2. Q:\StaffShared2 - a shared drive used for departmental files (Staff only) 

All QUB work should be stored on these drives as it offers a number of advantages.

Students are advised to refer to the Saving Your Work page.

Staff members who do not have access to the networked file store may request this on Request IT Support with the following details:

  1. For a personal Network Drive (Q:\Staffhome) please include your staff number
  2. For a shared Network Drive (Q:\Staffshared), your Line Manager must email your staff number and the full path of the network drive required e.g. Q:\StaffShared2\Student Files
