The University of Chicago has partnered with Box to deliver file sharing services to all faculty, staff, and students. Box is a cloud-based storage service that provides free, online space for storing or sharing files. Files stored on Box can be synced and accessed from several locations, including desktops, mobile devices, and laptops.

If you'd like a group folder for the permanent storage of your group's information and data, log into this form and fill out your details.


A Group Folder is a special folder that any BSD individual with UChicagoBox access can request on behalf of his or her group, lab or department and is co-owned by the BSD Information Security Office. This means that, once created, the Group Folder will remain active even if the user who requested it changes departments, closes his or her Individual UChicagoBox account, or leaves the Biological Sciences Division. BSD UChicagoBox Group Folders are as easy to use as individual UChicagoBox accounts and are great for the day-to-day management of shared department data.
