Box Cloud Storage

Yale ITS is phasing out Box @ Yale as an available service offering to support the community with better service and simplified storage options.

By July 2025 Box will be eliminated as a storage option for all of the Yale community.

Microsoft 365 (OneDrive, Teams, and SharePoint) is available as a cloud storage solution with larger quotas and no cost to you.
