Ohio State has teamed up with Box to offer faculty, staff and students an easy way to share files and folders online. To sign up for your university BuckeyeBox account, you must visit my.osu.edu. Once logged in, you need to click BuckeyeBox from the left hand menu. Then, simply accept the Terms and Conditions to enable your account.

Go to box.osu.edu to log in (and authenticate with BuckeyePass) and begin viewing, sharing and editing files online. Not sure where to start? Once you have activated your BuckeyeBox account, we recommend viewing our Knowledge Base article that outlines training resources. Go to Box University to view a number of quick videos and instructor led training available free online to help you get the most out of your BuckeyeBox experience. Within Box University you can add courses, watch videos and join webinars to learn the system.

OCIO has compiled a short list of the most applicable courses in a Knowledge Base article on Box University. Start by launching the “Navigating Box” course to understand the look and feel. Next the “User Essentials” course will give you all the basics to start using box. For a more in depth tutorial, launch the “Box Education New User Course Series” that explains best practices for sharing, communicating and organizing your files within box.
