What is the OneDrive?

Black Hills State University offers access to your OneDrive (formerly the L-Drive) files from any computer with an internet connection, on or off campus! OneDrive provides access to files to both faculty and students. All faculty and students have individual accounts with 1 terabyte of storage.

Students' OneDrive accounts are but one component of BHSU's Office 365 service. Starting this fall, students can also download and install the latest version of Office for Windows and/or Mac. These programs integrate with OneDrive to allow students to save documents directly into their own cloud storage. Watch your email and our FAQs page for updates on how to access this exciting new service!
