Microsoft Office (Windows) for students (free of charge)

UC Absalon has made an arrangement with Microsoft, to offer all students a free Microsoft Office program package. The package includes the newest edition of Office. You can install it on up to 5 units. The programs are only available as long as you are a student at UC Absalon. Below is a guide, showing how to install Office.



Microsoft Office is more than just the Office packages. Online services are also available. Please be aware that Helpdesk will not provide support for these services.
