Office Mobile for Apple and Android Devices

Overview:

Current WVU students, current employees and emeritus employees are entitled to install Microsoft Office Mobile on their Apple iPhone/iPad or Android devices through our Office 365 license. HSC employees can find instructions for downloading applications on the HSC Office 365 Resources page.

Please review the system requirements to ensure this will run on your device, and ensure your Login account has been activated so that you will be able to install this software. 

Note: Ensure your Login account has been activated so that you will be able to run this software.

Visit Microsoft's System Requirements page for information about supported Apple devices.

  1. Go to the App Store.

  2. Search for the apps you wish to install. For example, search for Microsoft Word.

  3. Tap Free or Get next to the app and then tap Install.

  4. Provide your iTunes password and then tap OK.

  5. Tap Open then Sign In.

  6. Enter your Login username followed by @mail.wvu.edu in the email address space and then tap Next. For example, if your Login username is abc0123, enter abc012@mail.wvu.edu.

    Note: Although WVU student email addresses end in @mix.wvu.edu, students should use @mail.wvu.edu to sign in. This is a special username for activating licenses, and is not an email address that students can use elsewhere.

  7. Enter your Login password in the Password field and then tap Sign In.

Additional information about installing OneNote:

If you install Microsoft OneNote, the app may ask for credentials for a separate account in which to store notes. For students, this can potentially be a personal Microsoft OneDrive account that can be created through Microsoft.

Faculty and staff wishing to connect OneNote to their WVU OneDrive for Business space will need to log in with a personal Microsoft account before being able to access the Settings and Accounts menus, which allow for the addition of an Office 365 account and connection to OneDrive for Business.

Additional information about installing OneNote:

OneNote for Android may require the creation and use of a separate, personal Microsoft account to allow initial sign in. If you are repeatedly prompted for username and password, and it is not accepting your Login username, followed by @mail.wvu.edu (Loginusername@mail.wvu.edu), please try creating and using a separate Microsoft account.

Faculty and staff wishing to connect OneNote to their WVU OneDrive for Business space will need to log in with a personal Microsoft account before being able to access the Settings and Accounts menus, which allow for the addition of an Office 365 account and connection to OneDrive for Business.
