How to Install Microsoft Office 365 Desktop Apps

In addition to having access to web versions, active students, faculty, and staff will be able to download Microsoft Office 365 applications on up to 5 devices (PC, Mac) and up to 5 mobile devices (Android or iOS).

Because of Microsoft Office 365's online activation features, Office apps will not work on computers that are completely cut off from the Internet. Computers must connect to the internet periodically for the software to validate its license.

  1. Login to the Microsoft Office Web Portal at https://portal.office.com.

    If your computer is joined to the campus active directory, it may automatically sign you in. If not, you will log in with your Campus ID (w+ID#@usm.edu).

    Login to Mircrosoft Office Web Portal
  2. Enter your CampusID password.

  3. Select "Install Office apps" located in the upper right-hand corner. Next, select Office 365 apps.

  5. The installation is an automated process - and it will download everything it needs from the internet. This process may take a few minutes.
