OneDrive for Business lets you access your University files securely in the cloud

OneDrive for Business

All Staff, Associates and Students are now able to access a new, secure online file sharing tool called OneDrive for Business via Office 365 on a Windows or Mac computer.  Please note that this is separate from your personal OneDrive if you use that.

OneDrive for Business is perfect for working collaboratively with University colleagues, Staff or Students, or external contacts.    External contacts do not need to have a OneDrive for Business account themselves; they can be sent a Guest link to access an individual document or a folder.

OneDrive for Business provides you with 1 Terabyte of online storage and is simple and easy to use, like other online files sharing tools, for example, Dropbox and WeShare.

However, unlike these other file sharing tools, Office 365 allows you to access OneDrive for Business securely which means it is a much safer way of storing, sharing and accessing these files.

You can access OneDrive for Business from any computer or internet-enabled device via either iExeter or the app launcher menu in Office 365

You can also download the OneDrive app to your tablet or smartphone via the relevant App store.

Once you’ve uploaded your work files to your OneDrive for Business account, you’ll be able to access them at home, in the field, or anywhere when you are on the move.

Please remember to use OneDrive for Business to securely access and share your work files. Other online file sharing tools, such as Dropbox, are not secure so should not be used.
