Downloading Microsoft Office 365

Students and staff can get Office 365 for free. Staff are to only download office onto their personal machines because we have a license agreement to put on their university owned computers. 

Please Note:

  • You can only have Office 365 downloaded onto five devices at a time.
  • When your status is no longer Student, it will automatically remove your Office 365 subscription.
