Connecting to printers

We have instructions for staff and students who want to print to the managed print service from their personally owned PC and Mac.

Your staff computer will be set up to print.  The University uses a managed print service.


Users no longer need to map drives to manage their files, instead we have instructions for using files.bathStaff and students can use files.bath to access and share files from their H: and X: drives.


Mapping drives

‘Mapping a drive’ is when you connect your PC to a folder on the University server. Once mapped the files are visible in windows explorer as if they were actually on your remote/home PC.

Mapping drives inside the University

These instructions generally apply to ‘normal’ staff PCs (not Mac or Linux). In many cases the drives and printers you need will have already been set up by your IT supporter.

Computers connected from ResNet or Docking are also considered ‘on-campus’. If prompted for a username and password use campus\username and your Computing Services password.


Mapping from outside University network(Other networks)

Please note: Docking, eduroam (at University of Bath sites) and ResNet are inside the University network there is no need to use VPN (Virtual Private Network) for access.

IMPORTANT: To connect from home you need to set your home computer to see the University servers (only done the first time you connect):
