Faculty and Staff Can Now Get Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus Free
As a benefit of Syracuse University’s campus agreement with Microsoft, current employees can subscribe to Office 365 ProPlus for free for use on their personal computers and devices. The campus agreement is negotiated and administered by Information Technology Services.
Each employee can download and install Office 365 ProPlus applications, including 2016 versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Access, Publisher, Outlook and more, on a maximum of five computers (PC and Mac) and five devices (iPhone, iPad and Android). Employees can download the Office applications by logging into the Office 365 portal with their SU NetID and password. Note that not all the applications are available for all devices.
The Microsoft Student Advantage Program extends to all faculty and staff, who do not need to be students to be eligible.
Office 365 applications installed through the Microsoft Student Advantage program remain activated until the employee’s University employment period ends.
