Update Your Computer Profile to Sync to OneDrive

To improve performance of our work technology, AIMS will be making a change to the way Housing user profiles are stored and synced on Housing computers. Currently, Housing employees are set up to use roaming profiles so staff can log into and work on any computer, but this can provide challenges. To help remedy this, AIMS is asking that all Housing staff, career and student, update their profile to sync to OneDrive by Tuesday, December 20, 2022.
