Office 365: OneDrive for Business

What is OneDrive for Business?

OneDrive for Business is a cloud storage service that allows you to store, edit, share and collaborate on your personal files and documents. It is a fully integrated part of Office 365, which means you can access, edit, and save your Office files all without having to download them to your computer. You can share and collaborate on work with students and staff and people external to the University, simply and securely.

Note: OneDrive is intended for your own personal working files. University staff who need to share and collaborate on documents with team/department/faculty etc. can do this in a Team Site
