Deactivate Office 365 if you see a "limit reached" error

Faculty, staff and students are entitled to up to five license activations of Office 365 Pro Plus under our current Microsoft Licensing agreement. This includes both, Office installations via Intune (which are done automatically on all University owned computers that are joined to Azure AD) and Office installations form (which should only be done on other devices).

If you go over this limit, you can manage your activations and remove those that you no longer need following these steps:

  1. In your Web browser, go to and sign in using your work or school account, if prompted.
  2. From the Install status tile, select Install options.
  3. Under My installs, select the down arrow next to INSTALLS to reveal the installs for Office or other products.
  4. Select Deactivate to deactivate the installs you no longer use.
