Microsoft Home Use Program (HUP)

Microsoft Home Use Program (HUP)

For a fraction of the retail price, Microsoft now offers enrollment in the Software Assurance Home Use Program (HUP) to UMKC faculty and staff. (HUP is not available to students, who are entitled to use Office 365 for free.) Under HUP, you may purchase one copy of Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2016 or Office Home & Business 2016 for Mac (not both) for personal use on your own computer. The price of $9.95 (plus tax) provides you with a license key and allows you to download one copy of the software.  You may also purchase a backup DVD for an additional $15.95.  Additional Language Packs for Office 2016 are now free of charge and can be downloaded from this Microsoft site.

The license is valid for you as a single user only (no others such as family members) as long as you are a University employee.  You are allowed to install your copy on a single device.

All support for the HUP software is provided by Microsoft. Setup and installation support is similar to the support provided to customers who purchase Microsoft programs at a retail store.

For additional information, and instructions on how to sign-up, please  login here   (using your campus single sign-on).
