Cloud-based Data Storage
Microsoft OneDrive is a cloud-based, file-sharing and storage utility that’s available to current Trinity College students, faculty, and staff as a provision of the campus Office 365 service. Please note that once you leave Trinity, your OneDrive access ends. For long-term file storage and sharing within your department, Teams, SharePoint or tamba are recommended.
When you use a web browser to access OneDrive, you can create and edit Microsoft Office documents (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, etc.) without having Office installed on your computer.
It is recommended that confidential or sensitive data not be shared or stored on OneDrive. Since OneDrive is a cloud-based service, data stored there can be accessed by any device (workstation, laptop, tablet, or mobile phone) with access to the Internet. Although Microsoft has controls that ensure the security of technology in Trinity’s managed environment, data may be accessed in a variety of ways, including potentially unsecured connections from homes or off-campus businesses. The individual is responsible for assuring the security of the connection and device they are using. Additionally, when files are shared with others from a device that is infected with viruses or malware, the data will most likely be compromised.

What happens when I graduate/leave Trinity?
Your subscription will remain active as long as you are a current student or employee. Once you graduate or leave the college, your free Office 365 subscription, including access to OneDrive, will end. You will, however, be given the opportunity to purchase a license directly from Microsoft.
Please note that this applies to students who withdraw for a semester but plan to return. You will not have access to the Microsoft portal and its services while you are an inactive student.
