This software is not to be made available to anyone outside of a participating department under any circumstances.
The Microsoft EES license has several terms and restrictions that apply to the use of the software. In general, the license states:
- Use is subject to the terms of Microsoft's licenses for Office, including but not limited to limitations on liability, disclaimer of warranties and exclusion of remedies;
- Users are only allowed to use the software during the licensed period;
- If the agreement ends and is not renewed, then all users must remove Office from their computers and cease using it.
The current agreement runs through the end of December, 2016.
If you stop working for one of the departments listed above, you are no longer licensed to continue using the Microsoft Office software and must remove it from any of your computers.
Microsoft publishes a copy of the Product Terms at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/licensing/product-licensing/products.aspx. This document cover the complete license agreement terms for use of the Microsoft software.
Work at Home Rights
The Work at Home rights:
permit using application, system, and CAL products on a personally owned device for work-related purposes only.
The Work at Home rights have restrictions that do not allow us to duplicate the installation CD's for distribution. If you wish to install Microsoft Office on a home computer for work purposes, you must follow the instructions below to access the server used as an installation point for the software. You can do this either by bringing your home computer to UNH and connecting it to UNH's network or by using the UNH Virtual Private Network (VPN) service to establish a secure connection to UNH's network via your home, high-speed Internet connection. If you install Office on your home desktop or laptop computer under this aspect of the EES Agreement, you must uninstall the software and stop using if your employment by a covered UNH department ends.
If you need more details about what is and is not allowed under the Microsoft EES Agreement, please see the complete terms via Microsoft's Enrollment for Education Solutions Volume License Guide.
The EES Agreement covers all versions of Microsoft Office so if for some reason you need to install an older version, you have the right to do that. We expect and recommend that most users will want to use the newer version, but we will continue to make some older versions available for installation for the foreseeable future. As you are allowed to run older versions of the products, you are free to choose from the older versions, the newer versions, or have both installed. We are not making installation media for any other older versions of Microsoft Office available. The EES Agreement does include Software Assurance. This means that we will receive updated versions of Microsoft Office as part of the license program automatically when they are available. We will make new versions available by updating the instructions on this webpage and notifying the contacts for all participating departments.
Please select the version you would like to install from the list below to receive details installation instructions:
- Office 2013 for Windows
