What is Office 365 ProPlus?

Office 365 ProPlus is a full version of the MS Office Suite. Currently CSU offers free downloads, up to 5 licenses for eligible individuals, of Office 2013 or Office 2016 product for personal use.  These products have the same features and functionality as the standard versions of MS Office.

Engage 365 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 Engage 365 account is ever deactivated, the licenses associated with your account, and those that were downloaded to use these products, will also be deactivated.  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.

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, the products are installed on the local computer. Office 365 ProPlus is not a web-based version of Office, it runs locally on your computer and you are not required to be connected to the Internet to use any of the products.  

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.
