Home Use Program

Microsoft Home Use Program - Discontinued

The Home Use Program (HUP) was part of an offering from Microsoft under the Enterprise Agreement (EA). This program enabled you to get a licensed copy of Microsoft Office to install on your home computer so you could work from home as long as your JLab computer had a valid license for Microsoft Office which was maintained under their "Software Assurance" program.

IMPORTANT:  Since Jefferson Lab has migrated to O365, the Software Assurance for Microsoft Office, which allowed HUP has been discontinued.  If you purchased a copy of Office through the HUP, your copy is no longer valid. You are required to remove this copy of Office from your home system.

As an O365 user, Office applications, such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, are available to you via portal.office.com from any system on-site or off-site.
