Office 365 relies on your Unitec network login credentials to give you access.

How long can I use Office 365?

Licensing will be active from the day after enrollment up to 90 days prior to class start date:

  • for most Unitec students the licensing will become inactive 190 days after class end date- if there are no other active or current enrolments.
  • for Research and Post-Grad. thesis students there is often a work requirement after end of formal classes, so licensing will become inactive 220 days after class end date- if there are no other active or current enrolments.

What should I do if I have finished studying and my license is due to expire?

Microsoft will give you the option to continue with your subscription by paying a subscription fee.
