UAB faculty and staff have access to Microsoft Office 365 to download Office products such as Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint — and they can also use those applications in the cloud, where each user also has 1TB of storage in a OneDrive account. Individual file sizes are limited to 2GB. Note: Consult with your school or department IT support before installing Office 365 on your office computer because an Office volume license is available for on-campus use.

OneDrive is only available for UAB campus faculty and staff; it is not currently available for UAB Medicine staff.
