In preparation for providing managed Brandeis Box accounts, we have discovered that your current personal Box account is associated with your email address. This message is to notify you that this account will be converted to a managed Box account under Brandeis University on August 13th. This change will not cause any data loss, alter your permission settings, or affect the folder structure of your content. However, it will give you access to several important features that are not available to personal Box account users:

  • Single Sign On with other Brandeis provided services
  • Larger storage quota (75 GB is the default quota for Brandeis accounts)
  • Password protected sharing
  • Faster uploads
  • Detailed version history

If you would like to join the Brandeis University’s Box account as a managed user, either take no action or reply to Raphael Fennimore ( with “confirmed” in the message body.

If you currently have any content within your Box account that you would like to remove or transfer to a personal Box account, please do so by August 12th.
