What is Individual OneDrive?

Individual OneDrive

  • Individual OneDrive is intended to be a personal workspace for your University documents.
  • Individual OneDrive is available to faculty, staff and students.
  • For faculty and staff, OneDrive is available as your email account is migrated to Office 365.  Campus migrations begin in March 2017 and will run through July 2017.
  • Users must follow the IT Acceptable Use Policy.
  • File and folder sharing is permitted as needed.  This is currently restricted to users with Onyen accounts.  External sharing is being investigated.
  • Sensitive data is NOT permitted in OneDrive.  ITS is currently reviewing this policy.
  • Users are provided with 1 terabyte (TB) of space.
  • Local IT support staff do NOT have administrative rights to assist with issues.  Support is provided by ITS.
  • Local IT staff have no administrative oversight of your space.  Example: If you inadvertently share data, they have no view of this.
  • When a user leaves the University, this storage is deprovisioned.  The timing is dependent on whether the user is faculty, staff, student or affliate.
