Current Students, your old Microsoft Live@Edu account has been upgraded to Microsoft Office 365.
The SkyDrive cloud storage facility is now separate from your Office 365 Student Email Account.
You now have two accounts:
1. UL student Email account
2. Separate SkyDrive account
Both accounts have the same user name and password that you currently use to access your student Email.
Current Students - How to Access your SkyDrive
Go to https://skydrive.live.com and log in with your UL Email address, e.g. email@example.com and your Student Computer Account password (as it was on the 25th of July 2013).
Note that from Friday, 26th of July 2013, the University of Limerick no longer administers this account. As a result, we cannot reset the password for you. However, Microsoft will assist with this, see screen shots below for SkyDrive password reset steps. Then to reset your password go to https://account.live.com/ResetPassword.aspx
SkyDrive can be used to store documents which can be accessed from any PC / mobile phone with Internet access.
