What is Box?

Box is a cloud storage solution used at Emerson for securely storing, sharing, and accessing college data.

A college Box account, with 25 GB of space, is available to all students, faculty, and staff, and accessible from the Internet on any computer or mobile device.

If you've ever used cloud storage such as iCloud, Dropbox, or Google Drive, Box functions very similarly, but is managed and supported by Emerson's IT administrators to help prevent unauthorized access, and to transfer, archive, or delete data when community members leave the college.

Google Apps for Education, including Google Drive and Google Docs, will continue to be available, but only Box is authorized to store confidential or personally identifiable information. See the Data Classification Table for details.
