All students and staff can have a personal file space in Files.Warwick. You can use these to store files and share them with others. Your personal file space is created automatically when you first visit files.warwick.ac.uk.
Group file spaces are ideal for collaborative or group projects where you need to store common project documents or research data for access by group members, including members external to Warwick. We recommend using a group space for collaborative projects because you can:
- choose your own custom URL e.g.
- hand over the entire file space to another administrator, say, if you leave a group or project
Unlike personal file spaces, you need to request a group file space from IT Services.
