Microsoft announces Office suite for students at no cost

Students can now install the full version of Microsoft Office on up to five PCs or Macs at no cost whilst they study at the University.

See the announcement for students or the Microsoft Student Advantage section of the IT Help website for more information.


Staff can continue to take advantage of the Home Use Program to install Office on their PC or Mac for a charge of £8.95.

Postgraduate Research students

For PGR students this is not available just yet, as their IT account and University email is more like that of a member of staff.

We are working on a solution that will enable PGR students to take be able to benefit from the Microsoft Student Advantage deal by the end of this year.
