Microsoft Office 365 for home use

This article will show you how to download and install the Microsoft Office 365 apps for use on your personal Macintosh computer, Windows computer, Android tablet, or iOS tablet. If you need assistance with installing Microsoft Office 365 on your personal device, contact your Computing Coordinator (for faculty) or the IT Helpdesk (for students and faculty) at 541-552-6900.

If you have a SOU-managed Windows or Macintosh computer, do NOT install these Office 365 apps. You should be using Microsoft Office Professional 2019 instead, which your Computing Coordinator can install for you.
