Store all of your university work and study files in the cloud and access from any device

OneDrive is for storing your work or study files. 

All staff and students have 1TB of space in OneDrive. The beauty of OneDrive is that you can access it from any device so you have access to your files from anywhere with an internet connection. You can create files in OneDrive and thereafter all of your changes will be saved back safely to the cloud so you won't lose your changes. For projects and group work, make use of the online collaboration features of Office Online (Word, excel, powerpoint etc) and edit documents in real time as a group.
