 Are these full versions of Office, and are they available for offline use?Yes, these are full versions of Office for the PC, and Mac and all are available for offline use.  The mobile apps (iPhone, iPad, and Android phone/tablets) have many of the features of the full Office versions but are not the full version available on  the PC or Mac.

NOTEThe Office 365 ProPlus software is free as long as your account is active.  Once you graduate or leave the university, your status will be changed to inactive.  At that time you will not be able to install new instances of Office 365 ProPlus.  On the devices that you have already installed Office 365, you will not be able to create/save/edit files. At that time you will be prompted to enter a product key to re-install a previous version of Microsoft Office or purchase Office at a retail store.  At that point, you may enroll via other subscription offers or purchase Office through a retail outlet.
