Office 365 installation on more than one computer?

One of the law firms I take care of has an intern position, that won't require email, but will need Word & possibly Excel.
They have Office 365 business subscriptions for 5 full time employees.
If each user can install office on more than one computer, can I just use one of the permanent employees account to DL office?
If so, can I disable Outlook on that computer, as I'm assuming if a user were to accidentally hit the outlook icon, it would automatically set up Outlook, based off of the user's account info that I downloaded it from.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It is against the license agreement to do that.

But there is a plan that only includes the Office applications: https://products.office.com/en-us/compare-all-microsoft-office-products?tab=2

I would recommend doing that for the intern.

You can technically accomplish what you are asking about, but you cannot *legally* do so. Office 365 ProPlus will install and will be usable by the intern if you use a different employee's account to activate the software, but doing so is against the licensing agreement. The 5 multiple license is meant for a *single user* to use the software on multiple devices, not multiple users on multiple devices.

Y, but forget online login outlook activities, That user account would not be able to utilize full online login access capabilities. For instance you have your own personal 365 account, you install in one of the office machines, don't let that user have access to your personal online info. You would have to make sure excel, word etc are logged out ,not a good idea.

Jeremy, all the regular employees have Office 365 Business subscriptions, there's not one for only office apps, not including email?
The computer I am setting up for this may have come with Office 2016 (someone trashed it & they asked me to wipe out & reinstall, I had assumed it was going to replace one of the regular employees computers), let me see if that was the case.

Office 365 Business is only the Office applications and OneDrive. You need to get Office 365 Business Premium to get email service.

Keep in mind if the main account holder also has a hotmail account, that hotmail could be accessible.

Just for the sake of accuracy - that assumption is incorrect. Outlook would never auto-configure an email account on its own.

They had the copy of Office 2016 that came with the computer originally & I am re-installing that.
Thanks to all!
