'SkyDrive' for students

16 February 2012

SkyDrive is an online service provided by the University as a result of an arrangement with Microsoft. It enables students to create, upload, share and access files from a web browser.

SkyDrive offers the following features:

  • 25 gigabytes of storage
  • access documents from any browser with an internet connection
  • modify file permissions to share specific files or folders with fellow students (useful for group assignment work)
  • smartphone access options.

Students can access SkyDrive by using their UniKey to login at

This system replaces the 100MB storage available through the University's 'U:/ drive' facility, that was in place in faculty teaching labs and general computing access labs on campus.
