UMass Lowell Information Technology has partnered with Accellion Inc. to provide a secure file collaboration solution called UML Shareit. This solution provides our university a secure collaboration solution that makes it easy for UMass Lowell to share information across university boundaries, anytime, anywhere while ensuring data security and compliance. Two important capabilities are:

  • Secure File Transfer, where faculty and staff can securely send files/folders up to 10 GB in size to colleagues internal and external to the university. This service was formerly called UML Dropbox.
  • Secure File Collaboration, where faculty and staff can easily set up secure “workspaces”, and invite colleagues internal and external to the university to share and manage files securely from a laptop, desktop, or mobile device.
Key Features:
  • Web-based, intuitive, and easy to use
  • File commenting
  • Track file versions
  • Workspace notifications to alert contributors when files have been uploaded
  • Role-based access to workspaces
  • Mobile access from iPhone, iPad, Blackberry, and Android devices
  • Integration with UMass Lowell’s Single Sign On (SSO) initiative
  • Plugins available for Microsoft Outlook 2007/2010

To access UML Shareit, visit, and login with your UMass Lowell email credentials.

A Getting Started Guide and User Guide are available on the Information Technology website. For more information or issues with UML Shareit, please email
