If you are a student or an employee of Ohio State, you already have free access to Office Online and BuckeyeBox, with unlimited storage thanks to the university. Put the two together and you have a winning combination.
On June 14, OCIO will be enabling the new Box user interface. We’ve published an article in our Knowledge Base, article KB05374 with resources for navigating the new design. You can preview this new interface by enabling it for your BuckeyeBox account now.

5 Reasons to Choose It and Use It
Not only do you have a choice in cloud storage and collaboration services, but more choices are also being added to the market on a regular basis. They include options like Dropbox, Google Drive and Box. As cloud storage becomes more advanced, more products will undoubtedly be added to the mix.
Did you know that Ohio State offers all students, faculty and staff a free and easy way to share files and folders online? BuckeyeBox, available through a partnership with Box, allows users to have up to 50 GB of storage. Through cloud collaboration, users can add other BuckeyeBox users to folders and even assign tasks.
Box has released some new features, which are now available on BuckeyeBox. These features include timestamps, as well as updates to Box Sync 4.0, the iPhone and iPad apps and m.Box.com.
The BuckeyeBox service is officially launching for campus-wide use, as of today. A.box.com website still has some improvements to make. Ohio State holds high standards for accessibility and we hope to see several improvements for this tool so that persons with disabilities have a truly equal experience when using BuckeyeBox, compared to the average user.
