Mapped Network Drives - COA

 

Network drives should map upon log in to lab machines for students and faculty, and on personal machines for faculty if the machine is on the Sooner domain. These drives can be manually mapped if needed. If user receives permission error, please contact 325-HELP (4357) or stop by the Gould Service Center in Gould Hall rm. B10.

COA users have personal drive, known as “U”. Student U Drive access must be requested via this page.
Network drives can also be mapped on personal computers. In this situation, the user needs to be connected to OUWifi or Ethernet on campus or while off campus, OUVPN.

Go to Computer - > Map Network Drive -> Enter the path to the drive and specify a drive letter (can be any drive letter, but should use COA "U" drive nomenclature). If it is an OU computer on the Sooner domain, hit finish and the drive should open. If not on Sooner, check “Connect using different credentials” and use sooner\4+4 for the username and your OU password for the password.
