As of 2021, UMass Lowell Information Technology (IT) began phasing out File Shares. The new standard for file storage is Microsoft OneDrive for individual files, and Microsoft Sharepoint & Teams for shared files in use by a department or working group.

IT will be contacting department managers and individuals with migration plans for Departmental File Shares throughout the spring. If you would like to have your data migrated to Teams, please contact TechServices via email: and we will be happy to expedite your transition. Please know that all departments will be migrated by June of 2023, if you have not elected a time to migrate by June, you will be moved at IT's discretion.
