The Box migration began in October 2020, and will officially conclude in September 2021. At that time, all Box accounts will become inactive. Currently, almost all student, faculty, staff, and unit accounts have been migrated to Microsoft Office 365, with the outstanding accounts being migrated in late August.

Users will have received an email from the Box Migration Team notifying them of the completed migration. Files and folders from Box will be in a OneDrive folder titled, “Box Migration Data.” Don’t forget to re-establish file viewing permissions for all external collaborators!

Beyond Office 365, Penn State invites students, faculty, and staff to utilize the GSuite. The GSuite allows users to securely store and organize assignments, documents, or class curriculum and access them from any device. GSuite users have 15 GB of free storage before needing to upgrade.

If you have any questions about the migration or file storage at Penn State, please reach out to Greg Giles.
