Microsoft Office for Home Use

    Published by Microsoft

The Home Use Program (HUP) for Microsoft Office is a benefit available to employees under UAH's Microsoft Office Campus Agreement. The HUP provides eligible employees a licensed copy of the latest version of Microsoft Office to install and use on a home computer for approximately $10.

This program enables the purchase of one licensed copy of the latest version of Microsoft Office for Windows or Mac to be used on a home computer or laptop for work or personal use for as long as the University maintains the campus agreement. You may continue the HUP as long as the corresponding software you use at work has active Software Assurance coverage.
