U of I Box, Accounts, Personal and Enterprise Account Conflict
I already have a personal account with Box using my @illinois.edu email address. How do I sign up for a U of I Box account? I cannot login via single sign-on with my NetID and password. How can I access my U of I Box account?
If you cannot login to U of I Box using your NetID and password, your illinois.edu email address may be associated with an unmanaged, personal account.
To resolve the conflict, you can either join your existing personal account to our managed enterprise (if you have already been using your personal Box account for U of I data), or change the personal account's primary email address to an external email address of your choice so you may register an enterprise account (if you have been using your personal Box account for personal data).
