How to Install
Staff can install the current Office application versions for Office 365: Microsoft Office 2016 for Windows and Mac OS X.
Please note that install is only available for personal devices and non-managed Windows or Macs. There is currently no support available for either product.
Users can install Microsoft Office 2016 on up to five different computers with a single Office license. For example, a user can have Microsoft Office 2016 installed on a computer in the office, on a laptop to use when traveling, and on a home computer.
If you currently own Microsoft Office for Mac 2016, you must uninstall that software when you sign up for Office 365. You will then download and install Microsoft Office for Mac 2016 through your Office 365 Loughborough University account—again, on up to five Macs.
What Happens When I Leave the University?
When you leave the University your account will be deactivated and your Microsoft Office 2016 will change to reduced functionality mode. In reduced functionality mode, Microsoft Office 2016 remains installed on the computer, but users can only view and print their documents. All features for editing or creating new documents are disabled.
