Box is a secure cloud and file-sharing service that departments at Bowdoin use to share files with their student employees. Student employees will no longer be able to access department folders on Microwave ("J: Drive"). Files that students employees access need to be moved to Box.

Box can be accessed via a web browser by logging into the Login Portal at and clicking on the Box app icon. Staff members who use Box files regularly may install the Box Drive desktop app which allows Box files to be accessed directly through Windows Explorer or MacOS Finder.


Okta brings a new login experience for a variety of applications. It also brings the ability to perform self-service password reset and an application portal for a one-stop login experience to many of the most commonly used applications.
