Office 365 (Office Suite / ProPlus) - How to install the Microsoft Office Suite on Windows or Mac for Students, Faculty, and Staff

Office 365 ProPlus allows currently enrolled (or employed) UWM students, faculty, and staff to download the latest version of the Microsoft Office Suite at no cost. Once you are no longer enrolled or employed at UWM, your subscription will expire.

All students, faculty, and staff with an active Office 365 account may install the Microsoft Office Suite (currently, Office 2016 for Mac and Office 2016 for Windows) including: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote, Publisher, Skype for Business (Lync for Mac), and Access (Windows only).

For more information on the ProPlus suite, please visit the Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus site.

NOTICE: Do not install Microsoft Office 365 Suite (ProPlus) onto a University-owned computer (PC or Mac). University-owned computers use a different version of Microsoft Office and attempting to install the suite from Office 365 (ProPlus) will break any currently installed versions of Microsoft Office. For any questions about Microsoft Office for University-owned computers, please call the UWM Help Desk at 414-229-4040 or submit a request via the Get Tech Help web portal.
