Installing Microsoft Office (Faculty & Staff)

UNH Information Technology has partnered with Microsoft to provide Microsoft’s popular Office suite for students, faculty, and staff.  See our Office 365 FAQ for information on what this agreement allows you to do.


THESE INSTRUCTIONS ARE FOR UNH FACULTY & STAFF. Click here for STUDENT instructions.

Faculty/Staff: Please note that UNH IT recommends that for UNH-owned computers, you install Office via the Office EES license.  Please click here for the EES installation instructions.  

If you wish to install Office on a personally-owned computer, then follow these instructions:

  1. Go to https://login.microsoftonline.com

  2. Enter your UNH email address OR your username@ad.unh.edu. The important part is that the address must contain “unh.edu.”  Click “Sign in,” then “Continue.” (When you tab to the password field, it will automatically redirect you to the next step.)
