Student Secure Portal for GCN File Access


Announcement: As of August 1, 2016, the Student Secure Portal is no longer in service.

The Student Secure Portal service was disabled on August 1, 2016. It was used by students to access files on their home space (S: Drive) on the campus (GCN) network.

Instead of using the Student Secure Portal to access your files on the campus network, you can use one of the following options:

  • SFTP for GCN File Access: Allows direct access to student's S: drive on the campus network, as well as access to departmental space approved and granted by their instructors or departmental staff.

  • MyCloud @ UNCG: Allows access to S: drive files via applications in Mycloud (e.g., within an application you can use "File Open" to browse and access S: drive files). Learn more at Using MyCloud.
For more background on the retirement of the Student Secure Portal, see "Network File Access for Students Will Change on August 1st (Network Storage Largely Replaced by Cloud Storage Solutions."



Note: File storage space for students has largely transitioned from the campus network to the cloud. UNCG offers students several cloud storage solutions, including Box, Drive and OneDrive. These solutions offer convenience of use and, in some cases, unlimited storage space.
