Getting Office at home

As a staff member at MIT you are eligible to participate in Microsoft’s Software Assurance Home Use Program (HUP).

This program allows you to get a licensed copy of most Microsoft® Office desktop PC (and Mac OS X) applications to install and use on your personal home computer (not an MIT supplied computer) at a very small cost.

Under the Home Use Program, you may acquire a licensed copy of the corresponding Home Use Program software to install and use on your personal computer.

You may continue to use HUP software as long as you are employed at MIT, and as long as the corresponding software you use at work has active Software Assurance coverage.

Please note that some product and language versions may not be available at the time you place an order.
