University of Stirling Box

Box is the University of Stirling’s cloud-based storage facility. It brings many benefits: easier collaboration, anytime, anywhere, any-device access to documents and unlimited storage space.

How to access Box

  • From the University portal, follow the link to Box on the left-hand side of the portal home page or go directly to stir.box.com.
  • Follow the on-screen instructions and use your network account to login (if you are using Internet Explorer on a staff PC on campus, you may not be prompted at all to login).

Box add-ins

To get the best Box experience on a staff desktop, please install the following two add-ins:

  • Box for Office (integration with your Office applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint). This is available from Run Advertised Programs in the Control Panel and is called ‘Box for Office – Install’
  • Box Edit (allows you to edit Box files in their native application e.g. Word. This is downloadable from within Box and you will be prompted to install Box Edit when you go navigate to a file and click Open. Box Edit doesn’t require an admin login so you can do this yourself.
