This is how you install Microsoft Office 365 under macOS:


Go to and log in with your university username (without additions) and the respective password. Click on Approvals.


Accept the Privacy Permission Statement (if not already accepted) and click on Save changes.


Go to and enter your university username + and click on Next.


You will be forwarded to the login page of the University of Bayreuth. The username from Step 3 should already be present. Now enter the respective password and click on Sign in.


Click on Install Office in the upper right corner to install Office 365. Install the downloaded file.


After the installation is complete open one of the Office applications (e.g. Word). You must now log in with your university username + again to activate it.


That's it! You may install Office on up to 5 devices. Steps 1 and 2 must only be done once.
