Microsoft’s Office Home Use Program (HUP) is now available for departments that participate in the Microsoft UC-MCCA software leasing program, 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 Microsoft Office  desktop PC to install and use on your personally-owned home computer.

Under the Home Use Program, you and our other employees who are users of qualifying applications at work (e.g. Office Enterprise) may acquire a licensed copy of the corresponding Home Use Program software (e.g. Office Enterprise) to install and use on a home computer. You may continue using HUP software while you are under our employment and as long as the corresponding software you use at work has active Software Assurance coverage.

Please note that some product and language versions may not be available at the time you place an order. For up-to-date information on the availability of Home Use Program software, please visit or the UCD Microsoft page .

     1. Can I get both Mac and Windows software? - No, only one Office product download per person is allowed.

     2. How many computers can I install Office on? - Up to two.  But this is "like a book" licensing.  Only one copy of Office may legally be in use at any given time.

     3. Can I get Windows 7 or 8 under this program?  No.

     4. Are other software titles available?  Other titles may be available in the future, if your unit has licensed them under MCCA.
