Project Description

Office 365 is a subscription service offered by Microsoft that includes both computer and cloud-based productivity software and services. As a Bellevue University student, you will have access to these services, including a university sponsored student email account. This email account will also be the official email address that all electronic university correspondence is sent to after your application is officially submitted. Please feel free to share this email address with your classmates.

Office 365 services available to currently enrolled students: Outlook, OneDrive, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, More…

This benefit is available to you while enrolled in active classes. These applications will be made available to you within seven (7) days of the start date of any class you are enrolled in. Please be aware, you will lose access to the Office 365 Productivity Suite and services 120 days after your final class ends. However, once completing your degree, you will retain access to your student email account indefinitely, as long as the account is actively being used.

Accessing Office 365

In order to login, you will use your full student email address and your BRUIN password. If you do not know your student email address, you may find it in BRUIN under the PROFILE tile. Please refer to the following article for assistance finding your student email address: How do I update my personal contact information in BRUIN?
