About Office 365 - discusses what is Office 365.

Microsoft Office 365 is a powerful web-based email and calendar platform that combines a very large email quota with robust, multi-device support.

Microsoft Student Advantage

As an additional benefit, students using Office 365 have access to Microsoft Student Advantage.  This means you are able to install the full suite of Microsoft Office applications (Word, Outlook, PowerPoint, Excel, Access etc.) on up to 10 devices you own, including Macs and smartphones/tablets.  Please note that Student Advantage is only available to registered Western and Affiliate students whose email is in Office 365. 

Microsoft Office Home Use for Faculty and Staff

Existing Faculty and Staff members have access to free Microsoft Office as well through the Microsoft Home Use program.  Visit the Home Use page for more information.

Fully Integrated Email, Calendar, and Contacts

All your emails and calendar items available on all your devices.  Setting up your Office 365 account in an Activesync supported client (Outlook, Android/iOS/Blackberry devices) will set up your Email, Calendar, and Contacts all at once.

Feature-rich web interface

The new Outlook Web App has powerful new options not available in Convergence including Facebook/LinkedIn integration, OneDrive, and online versions of Word/Excel/Powerpoint/OneNote that can be accessed from any browser.

Enhanced Reliability

Microsoft guarantees 99.9% uptime for Office 365, meaning more stability and reliability compared to Convergence.
