OneDrive for Business: Getting started

OneDrive for Business is Microsoft’s file-hosting service that allows you to store, share and synchronise work files: each user gets 5TB of storage. It is different from the OneDrive you might already have seen or used through your personal Microsoft account or through Nexus SharePoint.

It is certified against the internationally recognised information security standards and approved by the University for all data. However, you are responsible for using it in a safe and secure way. For more information, see OneDrive for Business security guidelines.
