The NHCloud environment is provided for those students enrolled in specific Newhouse courses as a resource for their course work.  Do not disseminate the login credentials to anyone beyond those enrolled in the class.  Failure to comply with this can result in the account being disabled.  All course folders are disabled on the last day of the semester.  Faculty access to this space is retained until the day after grades are due for any given semester as defined by the Registrars Office.  Students and faculty are encouraged to backup their data before the end of the semester to prevent any data loss.
