UW-Madison provides free online file storage and collaboration service using Box cloud file storage. Box provides you with a place to store, access, and collaborate on your files. Please note: The Box service is available only to UW-Madison faculty, staff and students.
Important note about working with Protected Health Information (PHI): Only secure Box folders configured with the involvement of the HIPAA Security Officer (or designee) may be used when working with PHI. If you are a part of the UW-Madison Health Care Component, contact your HIPAA Privacy or Security Coordinator with questions about the applications best suited for creating, storing, and sharing PHI.
Note: In light of significant changes to our pricing structure, a project is underway to evaluate Box use cases on campus. Please visit the Box Evaluation Project page for more information about this process.
