As of Nov 2, 2015, OneDrive has eliminated unlimited cloud storage space to Office 365 Home, Personal, and University subscribers. The new storage limit for University subscribers is now 1TB. You can learn more about the reasons for this change by going to https://blog.onedrive.com/onedrive_changes. By putting files in your OneDrive, you make them easily accessible to you from any Internet connection. Any files you store on your OneDrive will be available from any device/computer you use to access Office 365.

Your OneDrive is available from the Web but can also be available on your computer/device if you install the OneDrive application.

This does not replace any existing UB network drives including the R, T, M, H, and S drives. 

  • How do I access OneDrive?

    After your account is migrated, you will be able to access OneDrive and all Office 365 applications through the MyUB Portal and by going to https://portal.microsoftonline.com. If you go to the Microsoft Online portal, your username is netID@ubalt.edu, where netID is your UB account name.
