Box is a storage and collaboration service that gives faculty, staff and students the ability to access, store, and share content securely—anywhere, anytime, on virtually any device.



With Box, you can store an unlimited amount of files – from large presentations to a school paper – then arrange them into folders just like on your desktop. Access them anytime, anywhere; share with friends and collaborate with teammates, too. Just send 'em a link.

  • With Box's intuitive interface, you access files quickly and easily: from anywhere, on any device
  • Share files with a link, then encourage ongoing sharing by inviting people to view, edit and upload files

Today, more and more people view and access content from several sources: desktop, laptop, phone, tablet, you name it. Box provides anytime, anywhere access to your files from any device; so no matter where you are, or what device you're using, you're covered.

  • Save time and effort: Conveniently access and view all your content, right in the browser
  • Go mobile: Box offers six native mobile apps and 30+ mobile partners, with more on the way!
