PASS Space

Penn State Access Account Storage Space (PASS)

Penn State Access Account Storage Space (PASS) provides universally-accessible disk space/file storage space for use by anyone at Penn State. Upon receipt of a Penn State Access Account, all Penn State students, faculty, and staff are allocated (initially) 500 MB of online storage space. Users can increase their storage allocations to 10GB via the ITS Secure Server's Directory Quota utility.

There are a variety of methods one may use to connect to PASS. Visit the following link or see below for additional connection information: http://its.psu.edu/accounts/pass/connecting-to-pass/.
