Microsoft Home Use Program

The Microsoft Home Use Program (HUP) provides a way for Portland State University employees (faculty or staff members only) to purchase Microsoft Office at a significant discount. Students are not eligible for the Home Use Program.

You will only be able to buy one copy/license of the software, which will allow you to install it on up to two computers (either two PCs or two Macs, depending on which version you bought). If you need to reinstall the software, you can download it again from the HUP website. You must uninstall the software if you are no longer employed by PSU.

Purchasing Microsoft Office

To purchase Microsoft Office, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Microsoft Home Use Program Request Form.
  2. Fill out the form and select the Submit button.
  3. Watch your email inbox for a follow-up email message, which will contain a program code and instructions for how to purchase Microsoft Office through the HUP.
