What is Dropbox Education?

Updated Dec 11, 2023

Dropbox Education is a product designed specifically for the needs of higher educational institutions. Dropbox Education is built to facilitate collaboration between faculty and staff at colleges and universities.

What features are available with Dropbox Education?

  • Shared storage limits: Dropbox Education teams are given 15 GB of storage per user, and this per-user quota adds up to a single shared total, available to the entire team. So users with more files aren't limited by an individual 15 GB storage limit.
    • For example, a team with 300 users would have 4.5 TB of total available space
  • Longer version history: Dropbox Education team members have 120 days to recover deleted and previous versions of files.
  • Enhanced visibility and control: IT admins can manage users, monitor activity, and control sharing permissions from the Dropbox admin console.
  • Compliance support: Dropbox Education can help institutions comply with relevant standards and regulations, including:
    • The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
    • The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)
    • The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
    • The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act
