Office Online (Office 365)

Office Online Home

Office Online is an online office suite offered by Microsoft, which allows users to create and edit files using web browser-based versions of Microsoft Office apps: Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote. You can work on-the-go with the ability to get your files from anywhere because of the integration with OneDrive. (Office Online apps can only save to OneDrive.)

Office Online is part of the UVA Office 365 suite of tools available to you in the Office 365 portal.

How to Access Office Online

You can access the Office Online apps with a web browser by going to the Office 365 portal and logging in with your Eservices credentials. Once you are logged in, you will see the Office 365 App Launcher which shows a series of tiles similar to the Windows start menu. There will be tiles for each of the Office Online applications. Clicking on one of the tiles will open the app with a blank document, which will be automatically saved to your OneDrive.

You can also access the Office Online apps by opening OneDrive in the Office 365 portal and then choosing the New blue button at the top and picking a document type. This will open the appropriate Office Online application with a blank document, which will be saved in your OneDrive. You can also do this with an existing document.


You can search for an answer to your question on the UVA Office 365 Resource Portal anytime or you can phone or email the Office 365 Support Team, Monday-Friday, 8am-8pm (Federal Holidays excepted).
