Using Office at Home


As part of BU Microsoft Enterprise License Agreement, current faculty and staff are eligible to download one copy of Microsoft Office on home computer for the purpose of doing Work at Home.  For personal use, faculty and staff may purchase one copy of Microsoft Office for $9.95 through Home Use Program (HUP). 

Download and installation information for Windows and MACs

Note: Microsoft Office for Windows will check in with the BU server the first time you use it, and then every six months (for license verification). If you are traveling off campus and notice a failed check-in, please connect to the VPN at to allow the check-in to occur.
