How do I download and install Office365?

As a student or employee of Umeå University you have access to the Microsoft Office 365 package.  Included in the package are Word, Excel, PowerPoint as well as other programs.
This software is for Windows, MacOS as well as telephone/tablet.

1. In your internet browser, surf to o365.umu.se and login with your UmU-id@ad.umu.se
2. Choose Office 365 in the upper black menu bar.
3. Download the software via Install Office
4. Once the installation is finished start, ex. Word and click on Log in
5. Use Umu-id@ad.umu.se as the login.


How do I activate my UmU-id?


Activation guide

You can, as employee, student or associate to Umeå University activate your Umu-id.  The activation guide has instructions and helps you activate your account (and thereafter print out your newly created account information).

You can activate with help of a temporary identity that you should have received, or, as a student, with help of your https://www.universityadmissions.se/intl/start account.


With activation of your Umu-id, your AD-account is automatically activated with the same password as your Umu-id and your email address is created – normally in the syntax  {firstname}.{lastname}@umu.se


It is slightly different for students than for staff/associates.  First of all, a student AD-account is activated automatically together with their Umu-id and password is intially set as the same for both accounts.

The guide assumes that you have received a guest account for the wireless network at Umeå University.

  2. Select the network (SSID) UmU wlan.
  3. Start a web browser and you will get to a login page. If the login page does not come up, write http://administrationsverktyg.umu.se/Netlogon
  4. Logga in (Log in). If you are employed or student use your Umu-id.


  • If you your computer goes into sleep mode then you will be logged out.
  • Turn off proxy setting if it is on.
