Microsoft Office Home Use Program
The Microsoft Home Use Program (HUP) allows faculty and staff to get the latest version of Microsoft Office through a low-cost purchase and download.
In order to place an order for HUP, you must:
- Be a current University of Wisconsin employee.
- Have a valid UW email address.
- Know your campus's Program Code. Your campus's code may be available from your local IT staff and/or from the Campus Software Library (if your HUP code is listed on the CSL, you'll find a Microsoft Office Home Use Program link here).
Please also note:
- Eligible customers are allowed to purchase one copy each of Office Professional Plus and Office for Mac. (Microsoft changed this from only being able to buy for one platform on 11/1/2016.)
- The functionality of the products available matches those of retail versions and provide all the benefits you would receive if you bought it at the store.
- Your right to use this software is tied your continued employment with the UW and to continued renewal of UW System's Microsoft Enrollment for Education Solutions (EES).
