Is there a storage size limit for Files in a course site?

Most Canvas course sites have 5GB of storage space in the Canvas Files tool. If a course relies heavily on videos or if the video files are large, we recommend uploading the videos to Panopto Course Videos. Panopto is available in most Canvas courses with the exception of some professional schools.

If needed, the Canvas Support Team can increase the Files storage space on a case-by-case basis upon email request. If you are coming close to your file storage limit, you can request an increase by emailing
