NOAHSRV - Shared Drive Access (Windows or Mac)

Note: The first time you access NOAHSRV, you must be plugged in with an ethernet cable (or TWUStaff WiFi).

Once mapped, you can access it without being plugged in, but you will always need to be on the TWU network.

If you are off campus, you will be able access via a TWU issued machine using VPN.
