Office 365 for TU Berlin

By concluding the campus-wide EES Agreement, the University is committed to using Office 365. In certain circumstances, it is possible to continue using Office Pro Plus 2016/2019/2021; see also Information about the EES Agreement [1].


TU Berlin employees may also use Office 365 on personal computers for official business. Additionally, TU Berlin students can install Office 365 on their personal devices free of charge for personal, non-commercial use during their studies.

The software can be installed on up to 5 PC or MAC computers; in addition, the software can be installed on up to 5 tablets and up to 5 smartphones. You are entitled to use the software until the Microsoft EES Framework Agreement expires (currently 30.04.2025) or your student/employee status at Technische Universität Berlin ends.

Registration and De-Registration

All TU members can register for this service in the TU Berlin portal.

Office 365 requires a Microsoft ID. However, because the University does not share personal data with Microsoft or third parties, tubIT will create and register a unique pseudonym as a Microsoft ID when you register.

You can independently end your registration at any time on the same page in the TU Berlin portal. Your Microsoft account will be automatically deleted shortly thereafter.

If you are no longer studying or employed at the University, your registration will be automatically removed.

Download and Installation

Step 1: Log in to the TU Berlin portal and go to “My profile” > “Office 365” and then click “Aktivieren.”

Step 2: After a few minutes, your registration with Microsoft will be complete and you will receive an email confirmation.
Step 3: Please open the page: https://portal.office.com [2]
Step 4: Enter the following email address <beliebige_zeichenfolge>@msopseudo.tu-berlin.de (or another random combination of characters in front of "@msopseudo.tu-berlin.de"). You do not need to provide a password. Take care not to enter any personal data, including your personal email address.
Step 5: You will be taken to the Shibboleth TU Berlin login page, where you can log in with your TU account information.
Steps 6: Once you have registered, you will be taken back to the Office 365 portal, where you can then download the Office package by clicking the button “Office installieren.”

Important information: The first time you log in via TU Berlin Shibboleth, you must consent to have the listed data transmitted to Microsoft. All data shared are anonymous/pseudonymous.

Activating the software

Generally, it should be possible to install parts of the Office 365 package on your device without further steps. However, if you are asked to provide your username and password during installation, do not enter your personal TU account or email address.

Enter <beliebige_zeichenfolge>@msopseudo.tu-berlin.de (or another random combination of characters in front of "@msopseudo.tu-berlin.de") as when registering with the Microsoft Office Portal and do not enter a password. When activating the software, you will once again be taken to TU Berlin’s Shibboleth, where you can log in with your regular TU account and password.

Your Office package is now activated for 30 days and can be used offline. The device must connect to the Internet at least once every 30 days to continue to renew the activation.

Updates/ Upgrades

Updates and upgrades are included for the duration of the agreement.
