Individual Online File Storage – Employees


Employees have two sources of file storage. OneDrive is a feature of Microsoft® Office 365™. University servers provide home drives for personal documents.


Employees get one terabyte (TB) of file storage space in OneDrive, a feature of Microsoft® Office 365™. The space is in the cloud and it accessed through File Explorer or via the web through the Cowboy Mail (
