All About Using vDesk - Virtual Desktop

Student Access to Microsoft Office 365

Microsoft's Student Offers allows students to register for a free Office 365 account using a ".edu" email. As this service is provided by Microsoft, the University of Puget Sound cannot guarantee that Microsoft will continue to provide free Office 365 access to students.

Support Information Regarding Office 365 Accounts 

Technology Services is unable to provide troubleshooting for Office 365 as the applications are stored and managed on Microsoft's application servers. If you are having issues with Office 365 applications contact Microsoft Support.
