What You Get with Office 365

Faculty/Staff Email & Calendar

Microsoft’s Office 365 Exchange servers host all of Northeastern’s email and calendar accounts, which you access through the Outlook application already on your computer (Outlook 2013 or 2016 for Windows, Outlook 2011 or 2016 for Mac), synced to your mobile device(s), or through Outlook on the web.

Get more information on Faculty/Staff Email & Calendar.


Student Advantage Program – Office 365 ProPlus

All active students can download five free copies of the latest Microsoft Office applications from Northeastern’s Office 365 ProPlus enterprise license. These copies of Office are valid until one year after graduation or withdrawal.

Learn how to download and install the FREE Student Advantage version of Office.


Faculty/Staff – Office 365 ProPlus

Every Northeastern faculty or staff member’s individual Office 365 ProPlus license allows them to download the full version of the latest Microsoft Office suite on up to five personalcomputers. These copies of Office are valid as long as you are employed at Northeastern.

DO NOT install Office 365 ProPlus versions of Office on computers that you are not personally using. To install, you must tie that copy of Office to your Northeastern Office 365 account. This links all Office applications to your account, and provides access to your Northeastern resources and files. Just as you would not share your myNortheastern account with others, do not share your Northeastern Office 365 access.
