How to get Office 365 ProPlus for your personal devices

Once you have established that you are entitled to do so (via Lookup, see above), the installation process is quite simple:

Step 1
Have you enabled your University Microsoft account yet?

Note: New students arriving for the 2016/7 academic year can skip to Step 2 (you have already enabled your Microsoft account by using the Password Management app to change your initial password). You must wait 3 hours for your password change to take effect before attempting to download Microsoft software.

If you have not already signed up for your University Microsoft account, you'll need to follow the instructions here (please allow up to 3 hours for this process to take effect before you come back here to install your Office 365 ProPlus software):

Step 2
Uninstall your current Microsoft software

You must uninstall any other version of Microsoft Office you have on your device before you begin the installation of the new package.

For more information on how to do this, see Microsoft's instructions for uninstalling older versions of Office:

Warning to users of additional Microsoft applications:

If you currently have copies of any additional Microsoft products installed on your device (e.g. Project, Visio, Visual Studio etc.), these must also be properly uninstalled prior to the installation of Office 365 ProPlus.

If you do not have the original media/keys, etc. to reinstall your personal Microsoft software, DO NOT proceed with the Office 365 ProPlus installation process. The University cannot be held responsible for loss of your personal software applications
