As of March 19, 2015, UCSF is inactivating Box accounts for faculty, staff, or students who separate from the university. If a user has shared access to a Box file or folder that is owned by someone who is inactivated, that user will lose access that content. Should this occur, please open a ticket and list the name of the person who should be the new owner of that file or folder (usually the separated user's supervisor).

Note: If you are leaving UCSF and have shared data in your Box account, please read our instructions for transferring ownership of folders.

UCSF Box is now available enterprise-wide.
