Home Use of Brown's Microsoft Software

Faculty and Staff Home Use Guidelines

Brown faculty and staff are NOT licensed to use our licensed Microsoft software at home for personal purposes. However, Microsoft Office (Windows and Macintosh versions) may be used exclusively for Brown-related activities on personal computers owned by faculty/staff who are covered under the Microsoft EES.  (Hospital-based faculty and staff are not eligible.)

If you wish to use Microsoft Office at home for unlimited purposes, home-use versions of Office for personal use may be purchased for $9.95 from Microsoft. Faculty and staff must enter their "@brown.edu" address and the Office Program Code. (If you purchase Office using Paypal, your Paypal ID must be identical to your Brown email address.)

Software installed on personal computers must be removed if a faculty or staff member leaves the University or sells their computer.

If you have questions about Brown's Microsoft EES, email Software_Services or call 863-HELP (4357).
