The Office client supports having both an Office 365 personal account (used when you signed up for Office 365 Home/University) and a University account (login provided by your University), you'll be able to remain signed in with both. Your Office install will have both your personal and University ID associated with it after the installation.</p>LTU Authoring

Irresponsible parking includes parking on double yellow lines, across more than one space, on grass verges, or in an accessible parking space reserved for people with disabilities/mobility issues.
