Data Storage

Document Storage

By default, the day-to-day documents you create should be stored in the “My Documents” location on your Managed Windows Service desktop or laptop computer.

For All users

These documents will be automatically synchronised between your computer and Microsoft OneDrive in the cloud. This data will be kept securely in Microsoft data centres, currently in Ireland (Dublin) and Amsterdam (Schipol), instead of on campus. There will be three copies of your data: one on your computer, and typically one in Ireland (Dublin), and one in Amsterdam (Schipol).

Note: If your data is classified as Category Four (Highly Confidential) as per the information categories and controls policy, or has a requirement to remain in the UK, then an alternative solution is required, please contact the IT Service Desk on 01509 222 333, or via email at
