Critical Concepts


Steps to Take

OneDrive via Web Browser

1. Go to the sign-in page: onedrive.ucsd.edu

      Note: If you check the box next to Keep me signed in, OneDrive will remember your email address and you won't have to enter it again.

2. Enter your UCSD Email address (including @ucsd.edu)

3. After you enter your email and click "next", you will be redirected to a UCSD sign-in screen:

4. Log out: To prevent unauthorized access to your account, remember to select “Sign out” from the OneDrive navigation menu by clicking on your profile icon and close your browser after each session.


OneDrive via Local File System

You can access your OneDrive files via your local file directory if you have already gone through the file sync process:


If you have a PC running Windows 10/11, the OneDrive for Business client is already installed. Follow these instructions to set up the file sync (you only need to do this once).


If you have a Mac running macOS 11.0 or newer, download the OneDrive client for Mac in the Apple App Store. Follow these instructions to set up the file sync.

Mobile sync apps
