What is my File Storage quota for my course?

Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.

Courses are allotted 500 MB quota for file storage. Administrators at your institution set the file storage quota for each course.

The file storage quota for your course is located in the course details section.
