This morning UFIT went live with the Office 365 ProPlus program for faculty and staff. The program provides multiple free downloads of Office 365 to personal devices.
Microsoft made the decision to expand Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus for Education, a multiple-download program benefit which has been available to students since April 2014, to include faculty and staff. The program allows for multiple full downloads to personal devices (desktops and laptops) of Office 2013 Professional Plus, Office 2011 for Mac, and Office for iPad at no charge. In addition, UF faculty and staff can also download full software copies on up to five tablets for free and run personal copies of Office Mobile for iPhone, Android, and Windows Phone on unlimited devices.
The program website has additional information about what’s included, the links necessary to download free copies, and Office 365 training resources. Members of the university community with questions about the program or who need download assistance should email or call the UF Computing Help Desk (352-392-HELP/4357).
