NAS data storage

The NAS (Network Attached Storage) service allows staff and students in College to store non-sensitive data on a central network server, to provide a secure central access point to a large set of data with round-the-clock availability. This centralised data can be securely shared out to selected staff and students by managing the relevant permissions, based on their College username. NAS data storage folders can be connected to by the approved end users from any computer connected to the College network and from computers connected via the staff VPN service, which allows staff to connect to the College network when off site.

Who can use this service

NAS storage can be accessed by registered College staff and students. It is not possible to provide access to non-TCD users.

Getting started

To get started please read our NAS service overview.


Requests to setup NAS data storage can be made by registered College staff via the NAS data storage request form.
