What is Microsoft One Drive and how do I use it?

Northwood users receive 1TB of OneDrive cloud storage space completely FREE. Use it to store your work or school files across multiple devices with ease and security. Share your files with colleagues and classmates as needed, and edit Office documents together in real-time with Office Online. Information Technology strongly encourages our users to utilize this free 1TB of storage space versus other cloud storage solutions like Box, Google Drive, or Dropbox.

Microsoft OneDrive is now available to all Northwood students, faculty and staff.

  1. Go to https://onedrive.live.com/about/en-us/signin/
  2. Enter your full Northwood email address (username@northwood.edu)
    • If it prompts you, choose Work or School Account
  3. You will be redirected to the Northwood University login page
  4. Sign in with your Northwood University credentials
    Note: If you are already signed into Blackboard, you will go directly to Microsoft OneDrive
