Box Migration & Retirement

Migration of the University’s Box data began in October 2020, and Box cloud storage will be retired at Penn State in September 2021. Student, faculty, and staff files will be migrated to Microsoft Office 365 over the coming months. This move will help save on expenses to the University, simplify support, and allow us to leverage existing storage offerings.
