Are you looking for opportunities that will make it easy to collaborate online, make video calls and chat with fellow students and external parties? Would you like to share files and work in them simultaneously? What about being able to access your files anytime, anywhere and on any device: on your phone, tablet, laptop or PC, and with lots of storage space? The new Microsoft 365 cloud package is just what you are looking for. With Microsoft 365, you can work together in the cloud easily and securely. 

Features of Microsoft 365 include:

  • up to 1 TB of personal storage space for your files in OneDrive;
  • receive and send Email in Outlook;
  • the latest versions of Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
  • consulting with others online, making calls, chatting and collaborating on files online with other students and external parties in Microsoft Teams;

Download and install

You can download the entire package for free at and install it on five PCs and/or laptops (Mac and Windows) and on five mobile devices (Android and iOS). To do so, you must first set up two-step verification. Please read and follow the instructions below.

  • Step 1: Set up two-step verification

    Safety first: two-step verification

    Thanks to the transition to the cloud, you can get access to a lot of things with a single account. Although this easy method of collaborating offers advantages in terms of speed and study enjoyment, it also involves certain risks. That is why you need to secure your account with an additional login step: two-step verification. In certain cases, this means that you will need to confirm your login via your phone. 

    Please note: you can only get started with Microsoft 365 after you have activated two-step verification with your mobile phone. 

    How do you set up two-step verification? 

    Follow the instructions below to install two-step verification on your mobile phone. In general, you only need to go through these steps once and it should take a maximum of 5 minutes.


  • Step 2: Login to Microsoft 365

    Have you successfully installed two-step verification on your mobile phone? Then you can log in to Microsoft 365. You do this as follows:

    1. Go to
    2. Enter your UvA email address and click 'Next'.
    3. You will now be redirected to the UvA login page. Enter your UvA email address again and click on 'Sign in'.

    You now have access to the entire Microsoft 365 package in the cloud.
