Once you have been set up within the University’s Dropbox account, you will receive a link to download the Dropbox application.

Dropbox automatically updates to the latest version. These updates are rolled out gradually when a new update is available and are necessary to keep the desktop app functioning.

If you need to manually update to the latest stable version of the Dropbox desktop app:

Download Dropbox (starts automatically)
Install Dropbox (for Linux users)

You will need to have the ability to install programs on your computer. If this is not the case, please contact AskOtago and arrange for Desktop Support to assist with this installation.

To see which version of the Dropbox desktop app you’re currently running on your macOS or Windows computer, open your Dropbox desktop app preferences and click the General tab.

You can also access Dropbox online via any web browser at https://www.dropbox.com
