General Information

The Box platform is a useful cloud software solution which allows you to back up your documents on the cloud, as well as link any desired documents you wish to share with a friend or business partner. All of these tools are offered via the internet so you can access your documents within Box at any time from any location. 

Please note:

  • If you separate from the University, any collaborated items (documentation, content, and folders within your Home Folder) will be lost to your collaborators.
  • As a matter of standard practice, if you are generating content pertaining to your department to be shared with others, place the documentation into the departmental folders provided to you.
  • If you separate from the University, any content residing within departmental folders will not be lost to collaborators.
  • If you download the Box Desktop Applications (Box Drive or Box Sync), please note that you will need to store your files in the Box folder located on your computer in order for your files to be saved to Box. Box will not automatically save any files outside of the folder. For more information, please see the following article:
