OneDrive for Business (ODFB) is a personal document library intended for storing and organizing your documents and other files. You can access ODFB anywhere, and use it to share files with others both within and outside of the University. You may store up to 1TB with ODFB, and you'll maintain access as long as you have an active St. Lawrence University network account.
In addition to cloud storage features, OneDrive for Business (ODFB) allows you to use Office Web Apps. When you access ODFB via a web browser, you can create and edit Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote documents without installing the applications on your computer.
