To mitigate the impacts of COVID-19, MIT is making concerted efforts to provide a range of IT resources to the MIT community, both to ensure continuity of MIT’s mission and to best support our community as they engage in their MIT activities remotely. Information Systems & Technology (IS&T) is pleased to announce that 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.).

For more information about Dropbox quotas please see Dropbox quota FAQHow do I check my Dropbox quota?, and How do I obtain more Dropbox storage space? in the IS&T Knowledge Base (KB). 

Please see Data Storage and Collaboration Options in the KB for additional information on cloud-based data storage available to MIT community members. 

IS&T offers 24x7 community support for Dropbox. Faculty and course instructors who need help facilitating remote classes can send mail to teachremote@mit.edu or call 617-324-3578 (617-32-HELP-U). MIT community members who have questions or need assistance using Dropbox can contact the IS&T Service Desk.
