Middfiles, also called middcloud, is the college's primary file server. This is where you should save all your important files, because the servers are backed up regularly. Using Middfiles can save you from disaster if your computer breaks or freezes. Also, any files saved on Middfiles will be accessible from any public computer on campus, so you can print more conveniently.

All students, faculty, and staff are allocated personal space on the server and can have their quota increased on request. Middfiles also is the home of "classes" folders, where students and faculty can share files with each other.
