How to Use OneDrive for Office365

  • OneDrive is your college ‘cloud storage’ that is provided as part of the Office 365 package and is available to all current students and employees.
  • OneDrive can be used in place of a USB drive, as files that are stored in your OneDrive can be accessed over the internet from many types of devices, such as phones, tablets and computers.

To initially create and then access your OneDrive:

  1. Login to the Office 365 portal at This is the same login you use to access your College email account.
  2. Select ‘OneDrive’ from the Office 365 app launcher. If this is the first time using OneDrive, you’ll be prompted to click Next. This will create your OneDrive.

To upload files to OneDrive on the Web:

  1. Locate and select the Upload button.  


  1. Locate and select the desired files. You can select multiple files by holding down the Ctrl key, then click Open.

  1. Your files will be uploaded to OneDrive. (This may take a few moments.)


  • You can also drag files from File Explorer straight to your files on the OneDrive website.
  • In the Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge browser, you can also upload folders from the Folder option on the Upload menu, or drag folders to the website.
