The University has partnered with Microsoft to offer Microsoft Office 365 University for all current students. You can download and install the University version of Microsoft Office on up to 5 devices while you are a student at Penn.
Office365 credentials are automatically created for every full-time Penn student. The username for the account is your email@example.com and you will have to reset/set a new password for the account here.
Your Penn email address remains the same. Your PennO365 account is used solely to log into the service.
Once you've set a new password for your O365 account, you can download Office by logging into portal.office.com and signing in with your O365 credentials.
Note: It may take ~15 minutes after you've reset your password before you can login at portal.office.com.
We recommend starting with the Penn Office 365 information on the Client Care website. These tips will help you get set up.
