OIT upgrades to Microsoft Office 2013 for managed desktop environment

Beginning Monday, March 2, OIT Client Solutions will move its remaining managed desktop customers to Microsoft Office 2013. Many campus units and departments have voluntarily opted-in to receive Office 2013 in February.

Client Solutions will be updating to Office 2013 only on OIT-managed devices that are part of the WolfTech domain. All managed desktop customers are expected to have the suite of applications (i.e., Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Access, InfoPath, Publisher) by Friday, March 13.

NC State’s campus-wide license for Microsoft Office allows it to be installed on university-owned stand-alone machines at no charge. To obtain Office 2013, visit­­­­­­ the Software Licensing website. Faculty and staff can also purchase Office 2013 for personal use via the university’s Home Use program
