All students have a Microsoft 365 license while enrolled at NWU and for 1 year after graduation.
With your MS 365 account you can install Microsoft Office on 5 computers and 5 mobile devices. Microsoft Office will require you to login with your NWU email address to pull an active license. You can also access Microsoft Office on any web browser from portal.office.com (some tools in Microsoft 365 may not work unless using Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome).
Students have access to 1TB of cloud storage using OneDrive. We recommend using OneDrive over other cloud storage options to ensure sharing and file compatibility with faculty, staff, and other students. If you are using a Windows device you can use the OneDrive desktop client to backup your Desktop, Documents, and Pictures folders to OneDrive.
All of these Microsoft 365 services can be accessed on any web browser from portal.office.com (some tools in Microsoft 365 may not work unless using Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome).
We strongly encourage all computers to have some form of endpoint protection/antivirus software running at all times. While you are enrolled as a student you have access to Sophos Home Commercial Edition which can be installed on up to 10 computers at a time.
While NWU does maintain this program, we do not manage these Sophos clients nor will we have access to your Sophos dashboard. As such, NWU's support may be limited and Sophos should be the primary contact for support questions.
