Mapping Z:\ (MapToCEC)


How do I map the Z:\ on my computer? 


The Z:\ is a custom shared drive that is used by the CEC in conjunction with the Communications Sciences & Disorders department. Those needing access will need to be added to the appropriate Active Directory groups first. 


If you are off campus you must first sign into the WKU VPN in order to access the Z:\. You can find instructions for that process here.
