Available to

This is available for faculty, staff, and students.  This is not available for special accounts.

The install of Office is tied to your University of Wyoming, username@uwyo.edu, email account. You must log into Office 365 at least once every 30 days so Office can verify that you are still eligible. If ineligible, the Office installs you performed under the account will become read-only, so you will not be able to edit files with them. If you install Office as a student, your copy of Office is only good so long as you are an enrolled student. 

Procedure

If you experience problems with downloading or using Office through your Office 365 account, please click "Request Help" and provide as much detail as you can. If you are getting an error message please include that.

Cost

This is a common-good service offered to faculty, staff and students which means there is no direct cost to the individual or department.
