BuckeyeBox and Microsoft Office: Free Software and Storage Solutions for OSU Students

Working on a group project for class? Sharing documents or images with others? All OSU students, faculty, and staff have access to BuckeyeBox, a cloud-based collaboration tool that allows users to conveniently store and share digital files. To set up a BuckeyeBox account, go to https://box.osu.edu and click on the red “Sign Up” box in the upper-right corner. Setting up the account is easy -- just enter your OSU username.# and password, which you’ll also use to log in. Files stored on your computer can be dragged and dropped into your BuckeyeBox account. Box apps are available for access from mobile devices. BuckeyeBox is designed as an easy way to share files and folders, but should not be used for restricted data. Storage space on BuckeyeBox is unlimited.

Also, as an Ohio State University student, you can install Microsoft Office 365 on your personal Mac or PC for no charge. Details are available at https://osuitsm.service-now.com/selfservice/kb_view.do?sysparm_article=kb04725.
