Accept a Box sharing request


Box cloud storage will be retired at Indiana University in spring 2021. Migration of IU's Box data began in June 2020. For details about cloud storage options at IU, see Storage @ IU.

After your files are migrated from Box, the Box versions become read-only. Migrations will be finished by March 2021, and access to Box will be terminated in May 2021.

If you haven't yet started using IU Box, see Get started with Box at IU.

If you get a sharing request from someone, log into your IU Box account before accepting it, or you may be taken to a login page requiring several additional clicks to log in. If needed, close the window that opened when you clicked the sharing request, log into your IU Box account, and then accept the sharing request.

When connecting to your IU Box account from any non-IU login screen, enter your IU email address and no password (any password you enter will be ignored). You will be redirected to log in with your IU username and passphrase. A few applications will not redirect you; these require you to enter an external password. Do not enter your IU passphrase on any non-IU login screen.
