OneDrive provides 1TB of free online cloud storage (part of Microsoft Office 365 environment). Files can be saved and accessed from any PC connected to the internet. We recommend that you use OneDrive as your primary file storage location.

You can put various types of files on your OneDrive. Think of it as your "My Documents" in the cloud.


You will lose access to your OneDrive when you leave the University. More detail on when this happens is outlined in our Keep My Email FAQ.
