Step-by-step guide

Sign In

Go to and if you're not already signed in, Login using your campus single sign-on credentials.


On the homepage after you sign in, locate the 'Install Office' drop-down menu shown below and click 'Office 365 apps' to start the download.

Complete Installation using either option below

Install on a PC

  1. Depending on your browser, select Run (in Edge or Internet Explorer), Setup (in Chrome), or Save File (in Firefox).

    If you see the User Account Control prompt that says, Do you want to allow this app to make changes to your device? select Yes.

    The install begins.

  2. Your install is finished when you see the phrase, "You're all set! Office is installed now" and an animation plays to show you where to find Office applications on your computer. Select Close.

Install on a Mac

  1. Once the download has completed, open Finder, go to Downloads, and double-click Microsoft Office installer.pkg file (the name might vary slightly).

    Tip: If you see an error that says the Microsoft Office installer.pkg can't be opened because it is from an unidentified developer, wait 10 seconds and move the downloaded file to your desktop. Hold Control + click the file to launch the installer.

  2. On the first installation screen, select Continue to begin the installation process.


  3. Review the software license agreement, and then click Continue.
  4. Select Agree to agree to the terms of the software license agreement.

  5. Choose how you want to install Office and click Continue.

  6. Review the disk space requirements or change your install location, and then click Install.

    Note: If you want to only install specific Office apps and not the entire suite, click the Customize button and uncheck the programs you don't want.

  7. Enter your Mac login password, if prompted, and then click Install Software. (This is the password that you use to log in to your Mac.)

  8. The software begins to install. Click Close when the installation is finished.
