Microsoft Licensing: Installing Microsoft Office

Office 365 is available to all USNH Faculty/Staff and Students.

Note: If you have Microsoft Visio or Project installed, please check with your Desktop Liaison before upgrading to Office 365 ProPlus.

 

Task: To Install Microsoft Office.

 

Instructions:

Step 1 - Open a browser and navigate to https://portal.office.com

Step 2 - When the Microsoft Sign in window displays, enter your email address FirstName.LastName@campus.edu (for example: Jane.Doe@unh.edu, John.Doe@keene.edu, Jeff.Doe@plymouth.edu, etc.) for your school account and click Next.  If that doesn't work, you can also try your username@usnh.edu (e.g. jd1234@usnh.edu) which is a unique Microsoft identifier across all the USNH campuses.

Note: If you have other accounts that you have used previously you may be offered a selection of accounts to choose from. You maybe also be asked to select your Work or School account.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 3 - At the USNH log in page, enter your Username and Password and click Submit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 4 - To reduce the number of times you have to sign in, click Yes.

Note: If you don't want to see this option again, select Don't show this again.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 5 - On the portal Home Page, click Install Office > Install Office Apps. The executable file is automatically saved to your downloads folder (unless you have changed the location of downloaded files).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 6 - If you need additional help installing, click Need Help installing? at the bottom of the pop-up window

Outcome: After the installation is completed, you are prompted to sign into Office 365. These are the same instructions for logging into portal.office.com.

  • Enter your email address FirstName.LastName@campus.edu (for example: Jane.Doe@unh.edu, John.Doe@keene.edu, Jeff.Doe@plymouth.edu, etc.) for your school account and click Next.  If that doesn't work, you can also try your username@usnh.edu (for example: jd1234@usnh.edu) which is your unique Microsoft identifier across all the USNH campuses.
  • Select Work or School account (if prompted).
  • At the USNH login screen, enter your username and password.
