Connecting group disk space with home computer

If you have access permissions to a University of Helsinki network drive, you can access it using your home computer. Please note that if your access permissions are “Read only”, you will not be able to edit the files.


Detailed help

A group disk space is connected as follows:

Select This PC


Select Map Network Drive.


In the new window, follow these steps:

  • In Drive (1), select any available letter.
  • In Folder, enter the following address in the text field (2):
    \\\group\h###   or \\\h###
    (Note! Press ALT GR and + for backslash ( \ ))
    • replace the “h###” with the number of the profit centre (in this example, h907). See the list of profit centres in Flamma.
      GroupX if formed according to the first digit in the profit centre code, for example h907 = group9
  • Remember to tick the box Connect using different credentials (3)
    Do not tick the Reconnect at sign-in option on your home computer as the connection will only work if the VPN connection is established. This prevents unnecessary error messages.
  • Click Finish (4).

A log-in window will open. Enter your credentials in the format atkk\credential (for example, atkk\rkeskiva).
(Note! Press ALT GR and + backslash ( \ ))


If everything was completed correctly, the group disk space will open. You can also see the folder in the This PC window. All the folders you can access are displayed as subfolders.
