Network file space is a protected folder on the network which is available to all Evergreen staff and faculty by default, and for students upon enrolling in a class.
Student shares created this way are located on a server called Orca.
Faculty and staff will continue to use network file space on the server Hurricane.
If you are a student in the Media Arts, you may also have filespace available on Nimrod. Space on this server is available only through your academic program.
