The UNIX directory you are automatically placed in when you login into your account. You can return to this directory at any time by entering the command, cd. For users of the CS Server Linux flavor of UNIX, the home directories are in the path /home followed by the first letter of the users name. (e.g. /home/smith is the path for the home directory of the user, smith). You may create whatever files and subdirectories you wish within your home directory. Other users may or may not be able to access files in your home directory depending upon how the file and directory permissions are set. You can see the permissions by entering the command, ls -al. You may change permissions using the chmod command.
