OneDrive at Syracuse University

OneDrive is the default storage location for personal files at SU.  Saving to OneDrive on an SU managed machine is as simple as saving to Documents or Desktop. OneDrive lets you store and protect your files, share them with others, and access them from anywhere on all your devices.

Additionally, it used to be known as "OneDrive for Business," so you may still see it called that in places throughout Answers.

SU requires that sharing invitations be sent to an email address and requires that the invitee that is not using a email address be able to receive an access code at their email address to access any shared files.


OneDrive storage quotas vary by license type assigned to the user.  Staff and Faculty can request more storage from their IT support.
