Where students can store files at IU

At IU, we use Microsoft OneDrive at IU and Google at IU My Drive to store files. While you can use or access other cloud storage options, most of your courses will be integrated with Google My Drive. Microsoft OneDrive is not currently integrated with Canvas.

To help you make the best choice for your file storage needs, check out a side-by-side comparison of Microsoft OneDrive and Google My Drive at Store and share your individual files at IU.


IU will be limiting its storage footprint in the Google platform.

Although existing Google Shared Drives will continue to work normally for the time being, creation of new Google Shared Drives is now restricted to these scenarios:

  • As a transitional step to simplify the process of migrating institutional data from Google My Drive to Microsoft Teams
  • An option for departments that wish to pay for continued storage in Google

For further details, see About changes to storage in Google at IU.

Once you have determined your preferred storage, you can access your files from campus computers at cloudstorage.iu.edu.
