******************Office 365 for everyone**********************

UO Information Services is excited to announce that Microsoft Office 365 will soon be available at no cost to all students and employees on campus!

Next month, IS will roll out the Microsoft Office apps — including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook — and OneDrive storage.
Below and on the IT website is some initial information about Office 365 — the basic who, what, when, where, and why:
That information is aimed at a general campus audience. For IT staff, particularly support staff, we wanted to share some additional information about the project rollout.
We are working toward an expected Phase 1 launch date of May 4. To help IT staff prepare to support students, faculty, and staff as they start using the Office 365 applications, the Office 365 Project Team — specifically, the Support subteam — is working to quickly create, gather, and share documentation and training resources in the next couple of weeks.
You can find more information about the Office 365 Project at
If you have any questions about the Office 365 Project or feedback for the Project Team, please contact the Technology Service Desk at
Microsoft Office 365 for students and employees
What will we get?
  • Microsoft Office apps
    • Word
    • Excel
    • PowerPoint
    • Outlook
    • …and more (depending on operating system)
  • Unlimited OneDrive storage
These Office 365 applications will be available for Macs, Windows PCs, and mobile devices (iOS, Android, and Windows), as well as online via web browsers.
Who is eligible?
All UO students, faculty, and staff will get access to the Office 365 applications and services listed above.
When will we get it?
Office 365 will be available in May 2015. Eager to use Office? Give us your email address and we will let you know exactly when the software’s available.
Why Microsoft Office?
In previous years, the University of Oregon had a Microsoft software license that was paid for by participating departments, schools, and colleges. It covered only specific schools and colleges. The cost of this license was not much less than a license for all of campus, and Information Services saw this as an opportunity to provide software and storage to everyone by expanding this existing license for 2015.
Who should I contact with questions or feedback?
