OneDrive is a cloud technology service that comes bundled with with all recent Office programs. It allows you to save up to 5TB of files, photos etc, and then access them anywhere on a machine that has OneDrive installed. We strongly recommend using it to back up your work as it ensures your data is safe and allows you to synchronise your files across multiple devices including on the College terminals in the computer rooms and libraries.

To get access to this functionality on your personal devices you should download office 365, which is free for all students while studying at Oxford University.

OneDrive is incredibly easy to set up, and even easier to use.

1. Open your Office program. This guide will be using Word, but this works exactly the same in all other Office programs.

2. Go to file, in the top left, and then open the save as tab in the menu on the left hand side.

3. Go to OneDrive, and then press the sign in button.

4. Sign in with your University email address.  You will be redirected to the SSO login screen - enter your SSO credentials here.

6. OneDrive can also store non-Microsoft office documents. Just sign into your Office 365 portal, and then upload or download your files anywhere.

7. You can even use OneDrive to share files between different accounts. Just follow the instructions upon first logging in online.
