OIT is pleased to announce that Office 365 is now available for students, faculty and staff to download to their personal devices. Office 365 is Microsoft’s latest version of its Office suite of software, including Word, Excel and Powerpoint.
You can install a free copy of Office 365 on five desktops or laptops and five smartphones or tablets. Office 365 also comes with 1TB of cloud file space, called OneDrive.
To get Office 365:
University employees who want to download any of the MS Office products to their work computers should check first with their IT support staff; software licenses should be accessed via Software @ NC State.
Although Office 365 is now available, Google Apps @ NC State is the university’s primary collaborative application suite. OIT recommends that you use Google Apps for collaboration rather than Office 365.
Direct all questions about Office 365 to the NC State Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 919.515.HELP (4357).
