File Storage Options at Seattle Colleges
Seattle Colleges provide Microsoft’s OneDrive cloud storage (as part of our Microsoft O365 offering) for all students, faculty, and staff to store and control sharing of their files, if desired. OneDrive is accessible from any browser anywhere in the world.
To access your individual OneDrive from the web, you will need your MySeattleColleges Login and password. Click here to jump right to Microsoft OneDrive via browser access (you will be prompted to log in if you are not already logged into Microsoft Office365)
in any browser, go to the Seattle College Office 365 site: http://office365.seattlecolleges.edu, log in and then click the OneDrive icon.
