Make learning and research easier with Dropbox

Universities thrive when faculty, students, and staff work well together. Dropbox is the secure tool universities rely on to make collaboration easy. Faculties and departments can focus more deeply on their research and organise assignments without hassle. Students can connect with classmates and professors, without having to worry about schedules. And staff can keep operations running smoothly with quick access to everything they need—from personnel info to financial data—all in one place.

Access anywhere, any time
Dropbox works across any device, online or offline. With cross-device sync and no upload size limits, lecturers, staff and students can work on all file types, from research papers to large data sets. Equip your organisation with our intuitive solution loved by teams, students and lecturers alike.

Enable lecturers to do more
Drive lecturer success with tools that foster greater engagement and communication with students, staff and research partners. With Dropbox, lecturers can spend less time on administrative tasks, and more time focusing on teaching and research.

Plug into a global network
It’s easy to share documents and collaborate with anyone – lecturers, students and external partners – even if they don’t have a Dropbox account. Fuel inter-organisation research and innovation with easy collaboration tools and seamless sharing.

Works with your favourite applications
Plug into existing workflows easily, saving time and effort. Dropbox integrates with best-in-class learning management systems and tools already used in colleges, from Blackboard to Office365 and Turnitin.

Dropbox – transforming research and education around the world

University of Cambridge, United Kingdom
“We want to ensure that our staff and students have the best choice of technology solutions available to them at their fingertips, and therefore offering Dropbox has given everyone the opportunity to work more effectively with co-workers both here and elsewhere,” 
“We love working in Dropbox. We always have access to our files; we don’t have to ask other people to send us anything when we collaborate. It’s much easier to get the information we need.”
“We found Dropbox Business to be ideally suited to the school’s needs so we purchased 700 seats. As files are accessible anywhere and from any location, the platform enables all staff to collaborate seamlessly.”
University of Manchester, United Kingdom
“We deployed Dropbox Business to ensure that the University, its students, staff, research and global partners can continue to learn, teach and innovate truly world-class ideas securely without disruption”
“We’ve been doing scientific research successfully for years but digital has meant we can up the pace.  We are now achieving in three years what would have taken significantly longer and it’s because, with Dropbox, we can test our hypothesis much quicker than ever before.”
“Dropbox is our university-recommended collaboration and file storage solution. Leveraging the Dropbox and Cloudlock integration allowed us to deploy Dropbox securely whilst meeting our data compliance and security requirements, without impacting the user experience – across web, desktop and mobile.”
“Collaboration is vital to our success as a University. Technology and digital innovation are key to the unique learning experience offered at the University of Sydney. As our staff undertake multidisciplinary research, they increasingly need to coordinate with different areas of the University. Dropbox fast-tracks this process.”
