Education Commons at OISE

Announcement: HomeSpace Sunsetting



HomeSpace is set to retire beginning June 15, 2020. Education Commons welcomes you to OneDrive and SharePoint as your file storage solutions. 


HomeSpace will be retired in two phases.
June 15. HomeSpace files are read-only. Your files on HomeSpace are still accessible using Cyberduck—you can open them for viewing and download them—but no new files can be created, and existing files cannot be edited, renamed, or deleted. You should begin to move any files you need off HomeSpace, and to use OneDrive and SharePoint for storing your data.
September 8. HomeSpace will become inaccessible to the OISE community. All files must be moved to OneDrive and/or SharePoint before this date. 


Access your read-only Homespace files using Cyberduck.
It is recommended that you begin transitioning your individual files from HomeSpace to OneDrive first.
Departments should transition files to SharePoint, via your departmental champion.
