Support for the installation of Office 365 by the Technology Help Desk is limited to consultation. Computers must meet Microsoft's Office 365 system requirements and have internet access. Problems with installation may arise due to malware or hardware issues. The Technology Help Desk can only provide general guidance for resolving these issues and cannot service personally-owned computers.
