You must be a University faculty, staff and students to download and install Office 365 ProPlus at no charge.

Before you install or use any Microsoft Office 365 or Office 2016 product, we recommend that you verify that your computer meets or exceeds the minimum system requirements for the product. Office 365 and Office 2016 are designed to work with the latest version of Office, Office 2013, and Office 2011 for Mac. Previous versions of Office, such as Office 2010 and Office 2007, may work with Office 365 with reduced functionality.

Please note: Your copy of Office 365 will remain active as long as you are employed at or attend the University of Scranton. Once you leave the University your Office 365 subscription through the institution ends. You may then enroll in other available consumer or commercial offers.

Office is available 24/7, except for scheduled maintenance.
