Microsoft 365 for your home PC

Are you an employee or student at Utrecht University? Then you may use Microsoft 365 (Office) for free.

  • Use Microsoft 365 (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneDrive, Access, and Skype)
  • With a license that allows you to use it on 5 different devices

Use your UU e-mailadres and Solis-password to log onto the Microsoft website.

  • Then click ‘Install apps’ at the top right of the screen.
  • From here you can follow the instructions for installation.
  • If you are asked to enter a product key, click on ‘sign in to an existing Microsoft 365 subscription’.

Please note: Never install Microsoft 365 from the official website on a computer at the UU! This can lead to problems. On UU / Solis computers, Microsoft 365 is already installed by default, and in case a reinstallation is necessary it can be done from the Software Center.

  • Are you using a (personal) Mac?

    Then Microsoft 365 for Mac is only available for the three most recent versions of MacOS. Not supported version of MacOS do not receive the necessary (security) updates.

    Solis-macs are always up to date and supported by ITS.
