OneDrive is part of the Microsoft Office 365 online environment and can be accessed by logging in to https://swanseauniversity-my.sharepoint.com. You can store up to 200GB of data in this location.

Files in your OneDrive location can also be shared with colleagues both inside and outside the University. Please visit this link for more information on using your OneDrive.
