What is OneDrive?
OneDrive (Microsoft's Internet-based storage platform) is available for use with internal and external (non-UofM) colleagues. This service provides a solution for sharing documents with others while working on research, class projects or administrative collaboration. Remember, the use of this service should align with all UofM policies and guidelines. (Please see Campus Data Security Policy (IT6007) and the ITS Data Storage Guidelines.) Each UofM faculty, staff, or student are allotted 5TB of storage space in OneDrive.
To access OneDrive, visit the University of Memphis Office 365 Webmail site (authenticate using your UUID and password). Look for the App Launcher (9 tiles in a square) at the upper left of the screen (near "Office 365" logo). Select OneDrive and let the collaboration begin! You can also log into OneDrive site directly.
Our OneDrive documentation highlights the features of Office 365 - OneDrive. ITS Center for Teaching & Learning provides documentation and training.
