A network consists of PCs, printers, servers and other resources that are connected so that they can communicate with each other.  Some advantages of using networked resources include the sharing of printers with a group, the ability to work from home, and centralized backup of data. It is the network account that is used to gain access to these services. 

IUP network services include: 

  • Home Directory (H: drive) - Students are given 2 GB of H: drive space for storing homework and other documents. 
  • Personal web space - The wwwiup folder is where all personal web files are stored.  All files in the wwwiup folder are automatically visible on the internet. This is part of the home directory.
  • Project Directory Service (P: drive) - Used by some instructors, the P: drive is networked space with separate storage for each course offered each semester.  This service enables a student to hand in projects or papers, store data, and transfer information electronically. 

All of the network services listed above can be accessed from  When prompted for your username and password, you will use your network username and password, entering the username in this format:  IUPMSD\username
