FOREST Domain Account and Network Drives

Activating your NetID will create a FOREST domain account for you. Your FOREST account will allow you access to network drives. The P drive is the location of the faculty lab folders and the Public folder. If you are a faculty or staff member, you will also have the U drive. All business and research related documents should be saved to a network drive, which is backed up nightly.

P Drive:

  • CAS-PSY Public – department phone list, letterhead templates, instructions, etc.
  • Faculty lab folders – used by faculty, grad students, and research assistants to share documents and data

U Drive: (faculty/staff only)
Personal drive for private items and anything not to be shared by others, such as:

  • CV files
  • Journal articles
  • Chapter/book writings
  • Letters of recommendations

If you, your grad students, or research assistants need access to a P drive folder, please complete the Psychology Building and Computer Access Form at and fill out the "Network resources access" area. Undergraduate students are not permitted to submit the form giving them access to your resources.
