As part of the Microsoft 365 Education A3 license, the Microsoft products Office 365 (as an on-premise installation) for official use and Microsoft Teams (currently licensed until 31.03.2022) for official communication are available to employees of RWTH Aachen University. Office 365 can be installed locally on a total of 15 devices (5 PCs/laptops/ 5 tablets/ 5 smartphones). The web applications of the Office products are not available to employees.
Via the right to downgrade the Microsoft 365 Education A3 license, it is additionally possible to install one Office Pro Plus 2021 version (or an older version) per person for sole use on a business PC/laptop. This only applies to employees of RWTH Aachen University. In addition, Office Pro Plus 2021 (or an older version) may be installed and used on PCs/laptops in laboratories, libraries and freely accessible premises (e.g. lecture hall). If an employee has multiple personal work devices, they may not install Office Pro Plus 2021 (or an older version) one more than one of those devices. A local installation of Office 365 may be used on their other work devices as usual, but the use of Office Pro Plus 2021 (or an older version) under the right to downgrade is limited to one device.
