Office 365 Information

Question

What should I know about using Office 365 on personal device?

Answer

As part of the Office 365 suite of applications that BGSU began implementing in 2013, students, faculty and staff at BGSU now have access to install the Office 365 Suite on up to five computers.  This service is provided free of charge for as long as you are an active student or employee at BGSU.  Here are a few things to keep in mind before installing the software.

  • This suite includes Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, and many other pieces of the Microsoft Office collection.
  • Once you install and activate Office 365 on your machine, you will be able to save and open files directly within your OneDrive system.
  • Office 365 requires an Internet connection periodically and may stop working if not given the chance to connect for an extended period of time.
  • As a student, once you graduate, Office 365 will work for at least six additional months before warning you that you have five days to pay for a subscription.
  • As a faculty/staff, your license will be downgraded based on this table.
  • You can manage which machines you have Office 365 activated on using the same website you download the software from.
  • For training videos on using Office 365, visit the Hoonuit website and search for Office 365.
