Microsoft Home Use Program


Dear Kean University Employee,

You are now eligible to participate in Microsoft's Software Assurance Home Use Program (HUP). This program enables you to get a licensed copy of most Microsoft® Office desktop PC applications to install and use on your home computer. The current versions available are Office Professional Plus 2013 for PC and Office for Mac 2011.
Under the Home Use Program, Kean University employees who are users of Microsoft Office at work may acquire a licensed copy of the corresponding Home Use Program software to install and use on a personally owned computer. Employees are required to purchase a copy of Microsoft Office for use on their non-University owned equipment regardless of whether or not the personally owned equipment is being used for University business. This program does not pertain to University issued hardware as a copy of Office will already be installed and covered. You may continue using HUP software while you are under our employment and as long as the University maintains our Microsoft licensing agreement. The campus will be notified in the event that we are no longer participating in this program.
Please note that some product and language versions may not be available at the time you place an order.
How eligible employees can obtain this HUP benefit:

Employees must email the administrative contact microsofthup@kean.edu for verification to receive a program code. They can then order software online at the Microsoft HUP Web site.
 To access the Microsoft Home Use Program Web site:
1. Go to http://hup.microsoft.com/
2. Select the country to which you want your order to be shipped to and choose the language for viewing the order Web site.
3. Enter your corporate e-mail address and insert the program code you received from OCIS.

Note: This program code is assigned to our organization for our sole use in accessing this site. You may not share this code with anyone as it would be a violation of our licensing agreement.


4. Place your order online, and it will be shipped to the location you have chosen. Please note that a fulfillment fee (currently $9.95) will be charged to cover packaging, shipping, and handling costs.

Note: This does not apply to University owned computers. For installation of the Office suite on University owned machines, contact the Office of Computer and Information Services.

We trust you will enjoy this benefit and look forward to your participation.
