This is the email we recieved from Microsoft;
Dear College Employee,
You are now eligible to participate in Microsoft's new Software Assurance Home Use Program (HUP). This program enables you to get a licensed copy of most Microsoft® Office desktop PC applications to install and use on your home computer.
Under the Home Use Program, you and our other employees who are users of qualifying applications at work may acquire a licensed copy of the corresponding Home Use Program software (e.g. Microsoft Office Enterprise) to install and use on a home computer. You may continue using HUP software while you are under our employment and as long as the corresponding software you use at work has active Software Assurance coverage.
Please note that some product and language versions may not be available at the time you place an order. For up-to-date information on the availability of Home Use Program software, please visit http://microsoft.com/licensing.
To access the Microsoft Home Use Program Web site:
1. Go to https://hup.microsoft.com/
2. Select the country to which you want your order to be shipped to and choose the language for viewing the order Web site.
3. Enter your corporate e-mail address and insert the following program code . (*ask your establishment for this* .
Note: This program code is assigned to our organization for our sole use in accessing this site. You may not share this number with anyone outside our organization.
4. Place your order online, and it will be shipped to the location you have chosen. Please note that an additional fulfilment fee will be charged (£9) to cover packaging, shipping, and handling costs should you additionally order the backup DVD.
I guess you'll need to get your establishment to apply for a program code.
