All Middlesex University students can now install Microsoft Office365 ProPlus for personal use on up to 5 PCs or Macs, 5 tablets, and 5 smartphones. You can install and use the software for as long as you are a student at the university.
To install Office, you will need to log in to your university email account on your personal computer – then, click on the Office 365 header near the top left of your email screen.
On the next screen you will see an Install Office apps button near the top right – click on this button to bring down a menu, where you will see an option to install Office 2016 (as shown in the screenshot below). Please click on this to start downloading and installing Office on your computer.
Please note: If the link under Install Office apps says Install software instead of Install Office 2016, it means you do not have the Office licence on your account. You can add the licence manually by clicking on the link below:
Please enter your university email address and follow the instructions – after a few minutes you should see the correct Install Office 2016 link under Install Office apps, and you should then be able to download and install the full Office package.
After the installation has completed, you may be prompted to activate Office – please sign in with your university email address and password to do so.
You can also use Office apps on your iOS or Android device. You will need to download each software app (Word, Powerpoint, Excel etc.) separately from the App/Play store, and then authenticate by signing in with your university email address and password.
