Think outside Box. Prepare for your move.

Join a webinar to prepare your individual files for migration.

Migrations of individual files continue through the summer. One week before we migrate your data, you will receive an email, alerting you to the change. Most people will be migrated this summer, and you will have read-only access to your Box files after they are migrated. Read-only files can be downloaded but not modified in Box. You will still have access to edit files and folders owned by others who have not yet been migrated.

For details on the Box migration, visit:

Not quite ready for the big move? The experts at UITS IT Training are offering webinars to help you organize your individual and institutional files to prepare for the move.
