Office 365 Updated Steps for Installing or Removing the Office Suite on Personal Devices

A reminder that Microsoft Office can be installed on up to five devices as long as you are an employee or student at Washburn. We previously posted directions on this process in December 2014 and wanted to provide another update on that process. The process remained the same although now faculty/staff do not need to validate prior to being able to download and install the software. The process is the same whether a student, faculty, or staff is accessing the site.

  1. Picture of Menu within Office 365 for Installing OfficeLog into Office 365.
  2. In the upper right hand corner, click the Gear Settings: update your profile, install software and connect it to the cloud for Settings and Options.
  3. Select Office 365 settings.
  4. Select Software.
  5. Click Install to install the software.

If you get a new computer or need to remove an installation, steps 1 – 3 apply above in order to remove an Office installation. Only this time, click Install Status on the left side of the screen. This will display those devices where you have installed Office. Click Deactivate to disable the Office installation on that specified computer (i.e. Home Computer).

Problems or questions, please contact ITS User Services at support@washburn.edu or by calling 785.670.3000. We can also assist you in Bennett Computer Center room 104 to install the Office suite.
