Office 365 for Personal Use

With your myNMSU account, you can install and license Office 365 on five devices. Office 365 installs Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, and Teams. To begin downloading Office 365:

  1. Visit and sign in
  2. Enter your NMSU email address
  3. You'll be redirected to NMSU - enter your myNMSU username and password
  4. Click "Install Office" (top right corner of the web page) and select "Office 365 Apps"

Follow the directions to complete the installation. When you open any Office Application for the first time, you'll need to sign in again within your NMSU email address. You'll need to complete this as Office 365 can only be licensed when you log in with your myNMSU account.


Since retires keep their myNMSU account, can they license Office 365?
No, your myNMSU account loses provisions to Office 365. You'll need to purchase it personally.

I'm an NMSU employee, but I can't log into It tells me I need to purchase Office 365.
In rare cases, your myNMSU account isn't provisioned for Office 365. Contact to get your account provisioned.
