Microsoft OneDrive is cloud file storage service that the University provides to all faculty, staff, and students via the Office 365 subscription. You can save files, share them with both internal and external users, and edit the files simultaneously via the Office Online products, which are Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote.  OneDrive offers 5 terabytes of storage and can be accessed from any device that connects to the internet.

OneDrive can be accessed from any computer. The only requirement is an internet connection. No downloads are required. Once the file has been shared with other users, anyone with access can collaborate and edit the document in real time.

Faculty and staff should store data on Microsoft OneDrive. Data is encrypted in OneDrive, and the University has an agreement with Microsoft that ensures the data stays in the United States and is protected. Please note that OneDrive files expire alongside your account (e.g., when students graduate or when faculty depart from the organization).
