Access Your Shared Drives

Your data folder (H: drive as well as other shared drives) may be accessed remotely using one of the following methods (to access your files remotely, an internet connection is required).

Using EIC Citrix Portal:

This service will allow you to map every single network drive that you have been granted access to (including your H: drive). See “How to login to EICApps” for more details.

Using Internet Browser:

Note: Netstorage will be phased out during the Spring 2023 Semester.

Go to and enter your EIC Username and Password. This portal will show your account mappings, including the H: drive. This application allows all file operations (move, delete, rename, etc.) except downloading and uploading folders. Please note that files can still be downloaded and uploaded, but not folders.


You can access your files remotely from anywhere and any device, as long as you have an internet connection!
