OneDrive for Business Cloud Storage
Those with current CUMC/Office 365 email accounts can use Microsoft's OneDrive for Business to store their files and folders. OneDrive is a popular cloud storage solution offering 1TB of space, in addition to the default 50GB of storage per CUMC email account. Please review all information on our OneDrive page before you begin using it.
OneDrive can be used to store files of almost any type, including protected health information (PHI) and personally identifiable information (PII). While it does offer some sharing and syncing features, OneDrive’s intended use is as a personal repository for documents and files. It is not a replacement for departmental network drives, though you can share files and folders with others who have a CUMC/Office 365 email account.

Athens was removed to improve the security of the network and its users. We appreciate everyone's cooperation in making sure they are using Mercury for wireless on campus. For issues or specific questions please contact extension 5-Help (212-305-4357), option 5.
