Office 365 Now Available

Office 365 is now available for all current SHSU students, faculty, and staff. This update will not replace the current Office versions installed on SHSU computers, but will be an enhancement to the current Home Use Program (HUP).

With Office 365, you now have one terabyte of OneDrive storage and access to a free download of Office 2013 for PCs and Office 2011 for Macs. Office 2016 will be available for download in February.

To access your Office 365 account, go to https://login.microsoftonline.com/. Enter your official SHSU e-mail address (ex., @abc123@shsu.edu) – rather than your alias – and click sign-in. You will be redirected to the SHSU login page where you will enter your SHSU credentials. Your initial login will take about five minutes as Office 365 creates your account.

Office 365 comes with access to the following online versions of Microsoft software:

  • OneDrive (with 1 Terabyte of storage)
  • Word Online
  • PowerPoint Online
  • Excel Online
  • OneNote Online
  • Sway
  • Delve

Microsoft has compiled various YouTube tutorials for Office 365 products and functions with which you may be unfamiliar.

Please note that Office 365 is a Microsoft cloud service subscription that requires an Internet connection for full access to OneDrive storage and other Office 365 programs and features. Please ensure that you maintain a second copy of critical files on your S drive or other storage location.

Contact the Service Desk at 936-294-1950 or servicedesk@shsu.edu if you have any questions, concerns, or login issues.
