Box cloud storage will be retired in the spring of 2021.
A big change is coming to cloud storage at IU, and we want to give you plenty of time to prepare.
Box is dramatically raising its prices and is ending its unlimited storage offering. Because of these changes, IU (along with many other higher education institutions) will no longer offer Box storage as of March 2021. At that time, Box will be moved to a read-only state. Access for users will be terminated in May 2021.
Meanwhile, here are a few guidelines:
Don’t start moving now. UITS will provide tools to migrate Box data.
- Do start cleaning now. Delete unnecessary files and remove yourself from files or folders that you don’t want or need.
- IU will provide cloud storage options through Microsoft OneDrive or Google Drive.
This change is more than a year off, but we’ll keep you in the loop every step of the way as the IU community packs up its Box and moves.
