    Each University department and office is provided with a unique, secure T Drive.  Access permissions to a department's TEAM folder are managed by a T Drive "folder manager, usually a person within that department.  Any SU faculty, staff, or student can be granted access to a department TEAM folder by that folders T Drive manager.  

    The P-drive is a secure network "Personal" folder, that is only accessible by one person.  It provides a space for academic work or whatever else. Forget your laptop? No problem. If you save your work to the T Drive or P-drive, then you can access it from anywhere at any time with an internet connection.
