What are the network drives?
The P: drive is your Personal network storage space. Students receive 1GB of storage space on our network that is accessible from any campus computer. It is a great place to store your classwork -- plus it is backed up on a nightly basis!

The T: drive is the Teaching drive where many professors will store class notes or assignments. Talk to your professors to see if they use the T: drive
