Network File and Folder Permissions


Information Technology are stewards of hundreds of network files and folders used by faculty, staff, and students every day. Each folder is protected by strict security protocols. In order to gain access to these files, permissions need to be requested and granted. There are also occasions when permissions should be removed from these locations to maintain security. The offerings for this service allow Bowdoin community members the opportunity to request the desired access for a variety of network data locations.

To request an offering, click the appropriate button that fits best with what you'd like to request. For more detailed information on each offering, click the corresponding link under the "Service Offerings" section on this page.


Actions can be requested by any current faculty, staff or student. Please note that approval processes are in place and will be needed before access is granted.


There are no costs associated with file or folder permissions.

Service Promise
