First of all, this answer i generic for all *NIX envirements because when it comes to networking, protocoll is more important than programs / envirements..
As long as the protocol is well implemented, your client does not matter, as long as it "speaks" the protocol..
Judging by the URI your university is using a windows share (SMB).
First of all you should explore if there is an other fileserver protocol available, for instance you could use fish or scp if you can log in by SSH.
However, most *NIX has an implementation of SAMBA (https://www.samba.org/), wich is an SMB/CIFS server and client.
Most of the "windows share" applications in LINUX depends om SAMBA.
So depending on your DE (Desktop Envirement) there are several ways to access your share.
The most generic way however would be to mount your share somwhere in your /mnt/[sambasharename] directory..
- install SAMBA using your package manager (Fedora uses RPM / Yum right?)
- take a look at your distributions samba documentation and choose your prefered method..
you could now just mount it as root se unoficcial documentation http://www.oregontechsupport.com/samba/ or use FUSE to mount it as a user..
However, if you are using KDE, GNOME or an other DE it should find the share if SAMBA is installed on your system.
