In addition to digsecurity's suggestion, have a look at repquota(8). As an example of usage, running quota as a user:
scottm@tux [0] /usr/bin/quota -ug
Disk quotas for user scottm (uid 1002): none
Disk quotas for group sysvuser (gid 1000):
     Filesystem  blocks   quota   limit   grace   files   quota   limit   grace
      /dev/sdc1    6162*   5120       0    none       6*      5       0    none
scottm@tux [1]
whereas repquota as root:
root@tux [0] /usr/sbin/repquota -g /users
*** Report for group quotas on device /dev/sdc1
Block grace time: 00:05; Inode grace time: 00:05
                        Block limits                File limits
Group           used    soft    hard  grace    used  soft  hard  grace
root      --   11292       0       0              4     0     0 
sysvuser  -+       4    5120       0             11     5     0   none
bsduser   --       4       0       0              2     0     0 

root@tux [0]
I have posted further quota usage examples here if it can be of any assistance.
