What is Office 365 ProPlus?

** Office 2016 is now available for download for personal use **

Office 365 ProPlus is a full version of the MS Office Suite. Currently CSU offers the options of free downloads, for eligible individuals, of Office 2013 or Office 2016 for personal use.,  These products have the same features and functionality as the standard versions of MS Office.

Engage365 accounts, along with OneDrive, SharePoint, Skype, Office Pro-Plus and Office mobile, are activated / deactivated based upon an individual's current association with the university.  Please refer to the Messaging Services page for information concerning address assignment and account eligibility to determine if you are eligible for this service.

Please note: when, or if, your Engage365 account is ever deactivated, the license to use these products will also be deactivated and any item created with any of these office products will be available in "read only" mode unless the items are moved to an individually licensed office product.

You will be permitted to run Office on up to five machines being Mac or PC. You may also run Office Mobile for Android or Office Mobile for iPhone on up to 5 mobile devices.

Like other versions of Office, Office 365 ProPlus is available in a 32-bit and a 64-bit version. It is recommended that the 32-bit version be deployed, even on computers using 64-bit operating systems. If you think you need the 64-bit version, carefully review the information about 64-bit editions of MS Office before you deploy.

When Office 365 ProPlus is deployed, it is installed on the local computer. Office 365 ProPlus is not a web-based version of Office. It runs locally on your computer, you do not need to be connected to the Internet all the time to use it.  

The ability to download this product is limited to personal / home use devices only.  Should you wish to have the latest version of Microsoft Office loaded onto your office computer, or other CSU owned device, please contact the IS&T Help Desk at 216-687-5050.
