Personal Folders in the DLSU Network

Network folders provide faculty and students their own personal location within the DLSU network to access their files. The following are prerequisites to accessing your personal folder in the DLSU network:

  • An active My.LaSalle (MLS) account
  • A PC or laptop connected to the DLSU Network

    To check if your PC or laptop is already connected to the domain, go to Start and click Control Panel. In the Control Panel window, double click System. The System window will be displayed. The domain name should say manila.dlsu.edu.ph.

Important reminders:

  • The maximum storage size of a personal network folder is 50MB for faculty, and 4MB for students.
  • Please remember that the server is a shared University resource. Use this facility prudently.
