Box File Storage

Faculty & Staff Sign Up for Box Accounts

Faculty and staff can register online to activate their secure storage on Box.com https://tulane.box.com.

What is Box?

Box online storage is like a hard drive in the cloud. Store documents and files in Box and then access them anywhere, anytime, from any device.  Box also can sync files from your local hard disk automatically providing a backup that will always be available from other computers and devices. All Tulane faculty and staff have access to unlimited storage on Box and can view and access their content anywhere, anytime, on any device.

Who has access?

All Tulane Faculty and staff have access to storage on Box. Students do not have access to a Tulane provisioned Box account but may create personal accounts directly with Box with 10GB of storage.

HIPAA Protected Data

Tulane now has a HIPAA Business Associate Agreement (BAA) with Box cloud storage that allows HIPAA protected data to be stored on Box.
