Current Students and Staff can download the latest version of Microsoft Office via the Office 365 site, free of charge, through their University IT account. It can be installed on up to five personally owned PCs or Macs, as well as mobile devices including iPad, Android and Windows tablets.

Once downloaded, Microsoft Office will be available for you to use online and offline for the duration of your course or employment at the University. You may be asked to log in to Office 365 periodically to keep the Office products activated.

Currently when your course finishes, or your employment ends, your Office 365 subscription will also end. Any Microsoft Office software you have installed under your UEA login will go into reduced functionality mode, so make sure that you copy any files that you want to keep before you leave the University.
