How to access your files off campus (using FTP)
File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a means of transferring files across the Internet from one computer system to another. CQUniversity students are able to access files from their Student Network Drive (U: drive) via FTP.
To access your U: Drive from home -
1. Go to ftp://studhome.cqu.edu.au
2. Enter your student username and password
Please note that to upload files to your U: drive you will need to drag and drop them into the FTP window. You cannot use 'File > Save As' in programs like Word etc.
Alternatively, you can use an FTP program (i.e. FileZilla ) to access your personal drive. Most of these can be freely downloaded from the internet.
To use an FTP program you will need to enter the server name studhome.cqu.edu.au and your student username and password.
