As a faculty/staff member, which version of Microsoft Office should I use?


Depending on how your device is managed, you should use a different version of the software. Follow the recommendations below for clarification on which software you should use.


University-owned Devices

  • Managed by campus IT Services: Do not download software via the Microsoft 365 Apps for Enterprise program. You are covered through the campus license and campus IT staff will install all needed software.
  • Managed by departmental IT Professional: Consult your IT Professional for their recommendation and assistance with the setup process.


Personally-owned Devices

For your computers and devices that are not owned by the university, you should use software available through the Microsoft 365 Apps for Enterprise.


Is there any additional information I should know about?
