Do Not Use Microsoft OneDrive to Store Ryerson University Records

Ryerson staff and faculty members shall not store university records on Microsoft OneDrive. Ryerson offers staff and faculty members a number of options to store University Records (as defined in Ryerson's Records Management Policy) securely, including CFAPS (servers on Ryerson's campus) and Google Drive through your my.ryerson.ca account. We note that we have reviewed and assessed the privacy and security of the G Suite for Education suite of services, including Google Drive, and that Ryerson has an agreement with Google for the provision of these services.

If you decide to use OneDrive for non-university records, see Microsoft's FAQ, external link, opens in new window.

OneDrive is similar to Google Drive (except that Google provides unlimited storage) which all Ryerson students, faculty and staff already have access to, and which is provided under an agreement between Ryerson and Google. Before using the OneDrive storage provided by this offer, see Microsoft's FAQ, external link, opens in new window.

Please note that Ryerson does not have an Agreement with Microsoft for the end-user support of Office 365 Education, which includes Microsoft's OneDrive cloud storage service.
