Comparing Free and Enterprise BOX.COM Accounts

Free personal Box accounts

Free Box accounts, available to the public, are not related to the enterprise Box service at IU.  Anyone can have a free personal Box account; if you choose to create one, use a non-UCDavis email address and password of your choice.

You can share files from your personal account to your enterprise account.

Enterprise Box accounts

Enterprise Box accounts are available to all current students, faculty, and staff.

  • Accounts are individual; group accounts are not available at this time.
  • For more, including information about creating your account, see Box at UCDavis help menu.
