MSU is preparing to transition from Box to Microsoft cloud-storage platforms, OneDrive
and SharePoint, by March 2022.
The university is transitioning from Box for cost saving purposes. Box is eliminating
unlimited storage for higher education customers. If MSU were to stay on Box, the
cost of maintaining file and collaboration services would be unsustainable.
Moving to OneDrive and SharePoint for cloud storage leverages the University’s strategic
partnership with Microsoft to provide many of the same capabilities as Box while also
enabling seamless integration with other powerful Microsoft 365 collaboration tools
