MacOS? Windows?

Files on network storage?

If MacOS, is it on the latest version of Mojave and is the network storage using SMB? If yes, are multiple students opening the same files?

There is, again, a problem with SMB in the latest version of Mojave, released a few days ago. If more than three or four users open a connection, Mojave stalls completely for almost five minutes, until authd is relaunched by launchd...

Other software trying to use authd is stalled too in that period.

Not very likely with home users, but because you are in .edu, it might be related.
