Data storage

It is the responsibility of supervisors to request storage for their graduate researchers.

La Trobe University offers a number of options for data storage. For more information about these, please see the Data Ready Storage Guide.

Requesting storage

To request access to the La Trobe University research drive (P: Drive) :

  • Go to La Trobe University's Ask ICT page (Ask Services portal)
  • Go to Get Help > Accounts & Access > New File Share
  • The nominated share type should be "Research Project"
  • If you are a student and don't have access to the New File Share form, your supervisor can submit the request on your behalf and then give you access to the appropriate folder(s) created for you in their account.

To request storage space for your research data in general:

  • Go to La Trobe University's Ask ICT page (Ask Services portal)
  • Go to Get Help > Research Support > Research Data Storage Space
  • Submit the form and somebody from ICT will advise you on the best storage space options available. The type of storage space allocated to you will depend on your specific requirements and the nature of your project.

Note: Only La Trobe University staff members can request storage space. If you are a graduate researcher, your supervisor can request storage space for you. They then become the owner and manager of this space and can share it with you.

You can contact ICT (ext 1500) to discuss your requirements prior to submitting your request.
