Office365 OneDrive for Students

This article discusses how to use Microsoft OneDrive.

Accessing OneDrive via the web

Your OneDrive can be accessed from within the Office365 Outlook Web App by selecting OneDrive from the top right corner.  

Below is a picture of the OneDrive web interface. You can upload files to OneDrive from your computer by dropping them into this interface. Clicking the ... symbol to the right of a file/folder opens a menu with additional options.


You can create, view, edit files from web-based versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint or OneNote. While most basic functions exist in the web-based versions, more advanced features may require using the desktop apps instead.


OneDrive File Storage Details

Your OneDrive can told up to 1TB of data.  It can contain up to 20,000 items (files/folders), and individual files cannot exceed 2Gb in size.  For more details on restrictions and limitations, please see:

Obtaining the OneDrive Client

In addition, there is a OneDrive client for PC that allows for native access from your computer. On a Windows PC, it will appear in your Favorites menu after installation. The client allows you to open or save files into your OneDrive directly from applications on your PC, similar to opening/saving files in your X:\ drive.

Please note that the OneDrive app on the Google Play and Apple App store is intended only for the consumer version of OneDrive, and does not work with Xavier's version, which is branded by Microsoft as OneDrive for Business.
