Use Montana State OneDrive
Montana State University students, faculty and staff can use OneDrive for Business to store files, share files, and collaborate. Files in OneDrive are backed-up (and are an excellent way to have a back up plan for your work).
OneDrive is a part of the Microsoft 365 Office Suite.
- For help getting started with OneDrive, visit our OneDrive Training Materials page.
- Log into your Microsoft Office account.
