Decommission of umDrive


Information Technology Services (ITS) has been notified by the vendor that support for our umDrive platform will be discontinued effective Dec. 31, 2019. ITS has identified alternative services and prepared a plan to move data from umDrive that will cause as little disruption as possible.

umDrive will remain fully functional for fall 2019. Local Support Providers (LSPs) have been trained to assist with moving data to alternate spaces with similar or exact services as umDrive. You can find details on what services are available for storage, collaboration and publication at this website.

We understand this change is inconvenient, and we are committed to easing the discomfort as much as we can. For assistance with umDrive issues, please contact the Service Desk by calling 901.678.8888, emailing or visiting

Original (Official) Announcment

So what does this mean for you:

If you have stuff you want to keep that is currently on umDrive, you need to make a backup of it before the end of the fall term. (see website for instructions).

Faculty who use umDrive for various reasons will be changing to something diferent next term, so expect new instructions for getting content and submitting assignments if your instructor has traditionally used umDrive in the past and expect some technical issues at the start of the spring term.

On Friday April 26, this year's new members to National Honor Society for Engineering Technology - Tau Alpha Pi at the University of Memphis were inducted. These students represent the upper 10% of all Engineering Technology Students.
