Home Directory Service

Online File Storage at UVa

Home Directory Service Usage Note after the Storage Migration on Nov. 25, 2014.

After migration, and because of better security, users are required to use VPN (Virtual Private Network) for off-Grounds access to Home Directory accounts.

The Home Directory Service is a centralized file repository for all UVa faculty, staff, and students. You can use Home Directory to:

  • Back up your important documents on the UVa network (time limitations apply);
  • Store files online to access them from anywhere; and
  • Easily publish files to the Web.

Access your files stored on Home Directory using either a software program installed on your personal computer, or using the Internet, from any computer that has an active connection to the UVa Network. If you are off Grounds, connect to the UVa network by using the UVa Cisco VPN Client (UVa Anywhere profile), before attempting to connect to the UVa Home Directory Service.
