You can use NetStorage to access your files on the Middlebury server, from anywhere in the world. NetStorage lets you access Home, Classes, Orgs, and other folders the same way that you normally would be able to access them.

NetStorage works on any type of computer and with all standard browsers, so you can use it to access your files even if you are having technical problems connecting to Middfiles.

Open NetStorage

  1. Open your favorite internet browser.
  2. In the address bar, type in go.middlebury.edu/files. (If you're on campus, you can shorten this to just go/files.) Press enter to load the webpage.
  3. A login window will appear asking for your username and password. Enter these in the same way as if you were entering them in to access Webmail.
    • (Note that your username does NOT include the "@middlebury.edu" part of your email address.)
