Installation FAQS & Resources

Q: Who is covered by Middlebury College's Microsoft Office license?

A: Currently employed Middlebury undergraduate faculty and staff, Midd undergraduate students, currently employed faculty and staff at MIIS, and MIIS students are eligible.

Our license does not cover installs for academic programs such as the summer Language Schools, Bread Loaf School of English, or Off-Campus Study. It also does not cover emeriti, alumni, retirees, and contract hires.

Q: I'm confused. Do I really want Office 365 for business?

A: Yes! The links above take you to the proper installation pages. Our license is considered business/education.

Q: I received a server/DB error when I tried to log in. What does this mean?

A: This generic error means your email account is not authorized to use the Microsoft portal. Please contact the Technology HelpDesk if you feel this is an error.

Q: I'm having trouble with the installer. Where can I get help?
