To mitigate the impacts of COVID-19, Information Systems and Technology (IS&T) is providing a range of IT resources to the community, both to ensure continuity of the Institute’s mission and to best support community members as they engage in their MIT activities remotely. IS&T is also taking action in line with the latest Institute guidance to ensure the continuity of IS&T’s operating activities in support of the MIT community. As the COVID-19 situation evolves, we will adapt our plans and service delivery accordingly.
Note: On-site walk-in and repair service will be unavailable during this public health emergency.

Dropbox storage quota increase for MIT faculty and TAs (updated)
Dropbox quota terms have been updated: “MIT has increased Dropbox default storage quotas to 10TB for MIT faculty, lecturers, and Spring 2020 teaching assistants at no charge. This default quota increase was based on requests by the teaching and learning community in order to provide additional storage for MIT course materials (e.g. large audio and video files, etc.).”
