Getting connected for students

How to access the network drives

UCT hosts several network drives – such as an individual F: drive (personal storage space for each staff member and student) and the departmental G: drive (storage space for each department).

You can either access these drives by logging on to the network in a student lab on campus, or if you want to use your own computer, access the drives via NetStorage.


Connect to the wireless and internet

To connect your laptop to the internet, follow the instructions on the Access the internet at UCT page. To connect your laptop, mobile device or tablet to the eduroam wireless network, follow the instructions on our Wireless page.


Connecting to Resnet

If you are in a residence and need to connect to the residence network, Resnet, follow the instructions on the Residence Networking page.
