UChicago Box is a cloud-based storage service that provides unlimited free, online space for storing or sharing files. Although it’s easy to share your Box files with faculty, staff, and students at the University, there are times you may want to restrict access to your files to a limited number of people.

To allow individuals to view and edit your file, opt to invite collaborators. If you don’t want to manage each individual’s access to the file or you’d like to share with a larger group, use shared links. For either method, be sure to read through the descriptions of the sharing options to make sure you select the appropriate settings for your files.
