University-owned computers have their own separate licenses which are installed and managed by your IT support staff. The on-line version of Office 365 can be used in addition to your 5 downloadable licenses and can be used from any personal or work computer.
Office 365 is being introduced to provide more options, including free Office software.
If you have locked yourself out of your O365 account you can use your recovery options to regain access. Step one will be to use the recovery option "I forgot my password" to set a new password. After you set a new password, perform the recovery options for a second time, this time using the option "I know my password, but still can't sign in". Recovery options can be found on the portal.office.com site by entering your SDSUid and then clicking "Can't access your account?".
SDSU does not share your recovery options with anyone and they are not visible to others. Recovery options are used by the Office 365/SDSUid system to help you gain access to your account in the event you should forget your password.
