Office 365 is a subscription service that ensures you always have the most up-to-date tools from Microsoft. Office 365 ProPlus is included with your Office 365 account, at no cost, as long as you remain an active employee or student. This is a single-user license, connected to your UMB account, which allows for up to five installations. When you leave UMB, your license becomes inactive.
To download and install Office 365, go to this link, log in with your email address and password, then click on Install Office Apps.
Office 2016 also is available at a cost of $100. Office 2016 is sold as a one-time purchase or “perpetual license,” which means you pay a single, upfront cost to get Office applications for one computer. One-time purchases are available for PCs and Macs. One-time purchases don’t have an upgrade option, which means if you plan to upgrade to the next major release, you’ll have to buy it at full price.
To purchase and download Office 2016, go to this link, then log in with your UM ID and password.
