Access to OneDrive in Microsoft Office

Tags onedrive


OneDrive is a cloud storage solution that's included in Microsoft Office. It works similarly to Google Drive or Dropbox. Data you save to your OneDrive folder is automatically backed up to the cloud, so you can access it from any device you've signed into. This is highly recommended for your school documents, so that you can always ensure you have access to your papers and files even if your computer became unavailable.

On your personal computer

OneDrive is installed as part of Microsoft Office. You can find instructions for installing Microsoft Office at this link.

You may store up to 1TB with OneDrive, and you'll maintain access as long as you have an active St. Lawrence University network account.
