You must be on campus or connected to the VPN in order to access Columbia files

Step 1: Search for the Columbia Folder

In Finder, navigate to Go at the top of the screen, and scroll down to Connect to Server… Then in the Server Address field type smb:// and click Connect.

Note: Mac's running an older version of OS X may need cifs:// as opposed to smb:// if you encounter an error trying the above

Step 2: Sign in using your UCCS account

Sign in with your UCCS username and password and press Connect

Step 3: Locate Your Department's Folder

Departmental folders are listed in alphabetical order.  Double-click on the folder to open it.

Step 4: Creating a Desktop Shortcut

To create a desktop shortcut for a Columbia Folder, navigate to Finder at the top of the screen, and scroll down to Preferences… Then under Show these items on the desktop, check the box next to Connected servers. The shortcut should then appear on the desktop if connected. Right click on the server icon and select Make Alias, a new icon will appear on the desktop. Double click to reconnect the drive.
