Changes to OneDrive for Business storage for students, faculty and staff

Thursday, May 23, 2024

Microsoft has announced new storage limits for its academic customers, and as a result, UGA students, faculty and staff will see changes to the available storage limits in their OneDrive for Business accounts.

Effective August 1, 2024, OneDrive for Business storage for faculty, staff and students accounts will be capped at 1 TB.

If your storage goes over these limits, your account will go into read-only mode. You will not be able to add any more files until you move or delete old files and bring your account under the storage quota.

Your UGAMail account storage will not be affected.

Currently, a little over 100 users have OneDrive for Business accounts that are near or over the limit.

In the coming months, EITS will notify OneDrive for Business account owners who are near or over this storage limit of 1 TB, advising them to bring their account under the limit by August 1, 2024.

Microsoft also offers documentation on how to check and manage your OneDrive for Business account storage on their website.
