Microsoft OneDrive

OneDrive is a cloud file storage application that works on any device, making it easy to create, edit, store and share things like class assignments and projects. ODU offers OneDrive for Business with 5TB of online storage as part of Office 365 at no charge to faculty, staff and students.


Cloud Storage

Your OneDrive can hold up to 5 terabytes (5TB) of data. When your files are stored in OneDrive, you free up space on your computer's hard drive, allowing your device to perform better.

Work faster and smarter to increase productivity.


MS Office files that are stored in OneDrive will periodically save themselves while you work. If you lose power, if your computer crashes, never worry about the last time you hit the save button.

You won't lose time or data due to, well, anything.

Access Anywhere

Access files from any device (your desktop, laptop, tablet, smart phone) from anywhere with an internet connection (your office, a meeting room, home, on the road).

Never be without access to your important files.

Usage Requirements

Active faculty/staff or student.
