Data Migration

Data Migration

Utilizing Microsoft OneDrive, our faculty, staff, and students will enjoy the streamlined efficiency of a unified platform for file storage and sharing across the University. We will walk you through every step of the migration to make sure nothing is missed or lost.

Consolidation of multiple storage platforms to a single platform is both financially beneficial and will support our legal requirements to keep UVU's data properly protected. 

NOTE: We are working on finalizing our plan for this migration and will post updates about the project on this page as we release them.
