Resources Help You Continue Working

Here are a few handy resources you can use to continue working while out of the office:shared_drives

NDSU Departmental Drives

NDSU has implemented a way to access on-campus departmental and shared drives (sorry – no county or REC shares) from MOST Internet service providers.Follow these step-by-step instructions.

Note that the folder location (also known as he drive path) you need to enter will look the same as a secure website address (starts with https://). Entering it in a web browser will not work.

Cloud Storage

NDSU has contracted with both Google and Microsoft to provide additional storage (30GB and 25GB respectively) for each employee. However, while the services are currently available for use, they are not yet fully supported by NDSU IT. At this time, we strongly advise against storing any export-controlled data or data protected under HIPAA or FERPA on these drives as some servers may be located outside of the United States. Visit the U.S. Department of Commerce information on export restrictions.

Information about NDSU's SkyDrive and Google Drive are on the ITS collaboration and storage page.


You can access a Web version of Outlook from a computer or tablet connected to the Internet by visiting or clicking on Webmail under Online Services on the NDSU home page. All stored email, folders, contacts and calendar appointments are accessible. To log in, use your full email address and email password.

Setup of these resources can sometimes be a challenge. If you find yourself stuck, contact the Help Desk.
