About Microsoft OneDrive at IU accounts

Microsoft OneDrive at IU accounts are available to IU students, faculty, and staff with Office 365 access.

About personal OneDrive accounts

Personal, free (non-IU) OneDrive accounts are available to anyone with a free personal Microsoft account, and are entirely separate from Microsoft OneDrive at IU. It is not possible to share files between Microsoft OneDrive at IU and a personal OneDrive account.

Both free and paid personal accounts are available. For details, see Cloud storage pricing; some options are part of a personal (non-IU) Office 365 license. If you choose to create a personal Microsoft account to use with a personal OneDrive account, be sure to use a non-IU email address.
