Run the quota command. It works for an unprivileged user to find out their own quota use, even on NFS mounted filesystems.

I would suggest you run quota with the -h flag so it displays the quota as an easy to read value. – Alex Nov 18 '10 at 5:24
On Debian, the flag is -s, -h is the help – Trefex Dec 8 '15 at 8:33
