Box provides an excellent collection of documentation:
For Users with Existing Box Accounts
Do not delete your personal @umich.edu Box account prior to changing the email address and creating an M+Box account.
Users who delete @umich.edu personal accounts without first changing the email address will be unable to create an M+Box account following the normal signup process. If you have deleted your account, please contact the ITS Service Center

If you currently have a Box account using your @umich.edu email address, you will not be able to create a new M+Box account in the University domain.
I want to create an M+Box account and KEEP my personal account
- Change the email address attached to your personal account to a non-umich account
- Then, sign up for an M+Box account.
- You now have 2 accounts, one M+Box account, and one personal account at a non-umich.edu address.
