Installing Office 365 ProPlus on Windows

This page provides step-by-step instructions on how to install Office 365 Pro Plus on Windows PCs.

Make sure you are logged in to your Windows machine as a user with the administrative rights that you'll need to install software.

To start the installation process, visit: http://portal.office.com

The Office 365 'Sign in' page will be displayed:

Enter your <CRSid>@cam.ac.uk into the 'Email address or phone number' field, then press Tab.

Note to staff at the Judge Business School and those supported by the Clinical School Computing Service: Your institutions have their own EES agreements. It is important that you sign into Office 365 ProPlus using your institutional account (e.g. @medschl.cam.ac.uk or @jbs.cam.ac.uk). Please do not use your @cam email address because you will be taken to the wrong sign-in page.

You will be redirected to the University of Cambridge authentication website, where you'll be asked to login.

Enter your <CRSid>@cam.ac.uk email address and your UIS Password in the pop-up window displayed:
