Local installation on your computer
However, you can also download and install the full Microsoft 365 package on your computer on up to 5 devices. This works for both Windows and Mac. You can download the software from Academic Software. After downloading and installing, you will be prompted to log in with your Microsoft 365 account. This is your [email protected] (e.g. [email protected]) and your password. The video further down this page explains how to access downloading the package to your computer from Academic Software.
All 5 licenses are managed online through your Microsoft 365 account. There you can, for example, revoke a license and make it available for another device.
Again, you can use Microsoft 365 locally on your PC via your Microsoft 365 account until the end of the re-registration period in the academic year that you are graduating or deregistering; this is at the beginning of September. After that, you have the option to switch to a personal license.
Help and training
If you have any questions while installing the Microsoft 365 package, please contact the Academic Software helpdesk.
The video below briefly explains how to log in to Microsoft 365 as well as access the local installation of the software. This is done from Academic Software. It also shows you some features of Microsoft 365, such as creating a Word document and sharing via OneDrive.
