Web Access to Your Network Shares

The best and most reliable option across a number of devices is to go to webfiles.fortlewis.edu.

The site you will map to is dependent upon your role on campus, i.e. faculty, staff, or student.
So students would use "https://student.fortlewis.edu/files", staff would use "https://staff.fortlewis.edu/files", and faculty would use "https://faculty.fortlewis.edu/files".
