Migrate Files Stored on Box

Students graduating in May 2021 will lose access to their Box accounts on October 1, 2021.

Recommended Action

Yale students are eligible to convert their 50GB Yale Box accounts into personal Box.com accounts to keep for life. You must convert your account by October 1, 2021. After that date, there is no way to transfer your account to a personal one. Please note that Secure Box accounts may not be transferred to a personal account.

If you are remaining at Yale as faculty, staff, or any non-student role, you must still migrate your account by October 1, 2021 to be eligible for a free 50GB personal account. After October 1, you will still have access to your Yale Box account via your new affiliation, but you will no longer be eligible for a free personal account.
