Request a Paper Environment

Course Papers can be registered to a new or existing paper environment within the Computer Labs.

To register, you need to complete Paper Environment Registration Form (47 KB) and email to ITS. Alternatively the form can be posted via the internal mail to ITS Reception, PN460.

As part of the registration process:

  • Students enrolled in the paper in the Student Management System (SMS) are automatically added into the Paper Environment and are able to see its contents

  • A disk space area is created for Paper Coordinators to upload resource files for students to access

  • Students can receive a department-allocated printing budget for use in the Computer Labs

Setting a budget

Departments may choose to allocate a budget to their paper environment for students to use resources, such as printing. The allocated budget is fixed per environment. It is debited from the department and credited to the student's private computing account.

Student home directories

The student home directory is made available to students as their H: Drive, in the same way as it works for staff.

  • Each disk space has a limit of 50MB per paper per student.
  • Some students may have more than 50MB available to them depending on the papers they are enrolled in.
  • To enquire about giving more disk space to your students, please Contact ITS.

Accessing a course folder/drop box (Windows PC)

Paper Coordinators can access their paper environment directories using the following network drive location format:

Albany: \\massey\disk\albcourses
Manawatu (Turitea): \\massey\disk\turcourses
Wellington: \\massey\disk\welcourses

Then, navigating to the appropriate folder.

Once you have confirmed the full path, you can also map it, so that it becomes more easily accessible.

Student instructions

Instructions for students to access a course folder/drop box can be found at Accessing a course folder/drop box.
