An Office 365 tenant is an organization's reserved space in Office 365 (O365). The term "tenant" is used because O365 and its associated products and tools comprise a monthly pay service. Similar to an apartment dweller being a tenant to the apartment's landlord, an O365 tenant owner is renting access to applications, server space, and administrative services provided by Microsoft, who owns and runs the services provided through O365. Also similar to an apartment dweller, the contents hosted within a tenant remain the sole property of the tenant owner and not that of Microsoft.
