UMD Box Service

Box is a cloud-based storage and collaboration system that provides a Web interface for uploading, downloading, sharing, and discussing files. Box is designed to work on Macs, PCs, smartphones, and tablets, so it gives you access to your files from just about anywhere.

UMD Box accounts are hosted by Box and managed by UMD's Division of IT. All rights and responsibilities established in the UMD Policy on the Acceptable Use of IT Resources apply to the UMD Box service.

Faculty and staff users of this service should be aware of the limitations on the types of data that may be stored in a Box account.

Current students, faculty, and staff are eligible for a UMD Box account. Individual accounts have 50 GB of space.

Please note that creating a UMD Box account will share limited personal information (name and UMD email address) with members of the UMD community.

Visit the how-tos and other information page for more specifics about UMD Box accounts.

Organizational accounts are also available for colleges/departments, student groups, and other groups affiliated with the university.

If you have any questions about Box, please contact the Help Desk.
