Back to Member Services
This page has details of the Melb PC Office 365 accounts available to members. These accounts enable members to access a cloud based suite of Microsoft Office 365 apps, view “members only” pages on our website, update their Melb PC membership details and renew their membership online.
Please note: The Melb PC Office365 ProPlus offer is quite different. It gives access to a licence for up 15 computers or devices, including full versions of Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Access, and Publisher as installable software. Details are here.
A Melb PC Office 365 account normally has a username of the form firstname.lastname@example.org and a password. If you can sign in to Office 365 with this username and password via the Quick Links for Melb PC Office 365 Sign In on the Home Page, you already have an active Melb PC Office 365 Account.
If you cannot sign in as described above, you may need to request a Melb PC Office 365 account - see below for more details.

About Melb PC Office 365 accounts
It is anticipated that Melb PC members will have a Melb PC Office 365 account set up for them when they join.
Please Note: Having an active Melb PC Office 365 Account does NOT mean you must use Melb PC as your email provider – members can nominate their preferred email address from any non Melb PC email provider. Nor are you obligated to use Office 365 apps, although many of our members find them attractive and useful.
You will, however, need a Melb PC Office 365 account to access member only pages on our Melb PC website.
Melb PC Office 365 accounts enable you to use …
- Cloud versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote
- OneDrive – with up to 1 TB of cloud storage.
