Dropbox Offers Up To 25 GB Free Storage Space To Students And Schools [Updates]

Ads by Google

You really have to give it Dropbox, they seem to always find a way to give users more and more free storage space—from the free 500 MB space for referral sign-ups to additional 500 MB of storage for photo uploads. And now if you’re a college student anywhere in world, you qualify as part of Dropbox’s Space Race Program for an extra 3 GB of Dropbox space for two years, plus up to 25 GB of space for your school for two years.

Of course, while Dropbox offers all this free, it does want some of its freeloading customers to make a premium upgrade, but as one of the leading cloud services on the Internet, Dropbox is being pretty generous. Note also, the 3 GB of storage is in addition to the 2 GB of free space given to everyone who signs up for Dropbox.

To be eligible for the Space Race Program, you must meet the following the criteria:

  • You must be an actively enrolled in a college or university or the equivalent of a university.
  • You need to sign up with active email address from the school you attend (note: you also qualify if you already have existing Dropbox account).
  • Your higher education institution must also have at least 25 participants sign up for the program (so announce it in one of your classes).

The program runs from October 15 to December 10, 2012. You sign up by visiting www.dropbox.com/spacerace. Any additional storage space earned through the program will expire on January 15, 2015, and thus accounts will downgrade to the users’ original, initial free space.
