1. Before You Begin

Here's what you should know:

  • If you have a campus account (ECS-ID or SPS-ID), you are eligible for Microsoft 365 services. A Microsoft 365 account is required to use the service, so please follow the instructions in the User Guide to find your account. If you are an ECS-ID holder, it's the same as your university email (KUMOI) address and looks like: *; if you are an SPS-ID holder, it is *
  • If you are a faculty/staff member with an ECS-ID or working at Kyoto University Hospital as medical staff, some services may not be available. (See the User Guide for more details.)
  • Kyoto University CO-OP will sell Microsoft 365 licenses under the EES campus agreement until the end of February 2023. If you have already bought a license that is valid as of the end of February 2023, you may need to transition to another Microsoft 365 account provided by the university. Please read the instructions in the User Guide to determine whether or not the transition is required for you.
  • At this moment, almost all services and functions that involve some collaboration between users are severely limited due to past operational policies. (See the User Guide for more details.) We are planning to make changes to these policies to give users more flexibility in the future, but please be aware that certain uses of our Microsoft 365 services may not work as expected.
  • The content of this service is subject to change without notice in accordance with Microsoft policy.
  • Our email service for students (KUMOI) is powered by Microsoft 365. See KUMOI for more details.

4. Cancellation

When you leave the university, you will automatically lose access to these software products and cloud services. You will need to uninstall them or purchase a corresponding license. Because your data will also be lost, you must back up your data to another location or transfer it to another person before you leave.
