All active students have access to download five free copies of the latest Microsoft Office applications due to Northeastern’s Office 365 ProPlus enterprise license. This currently means Office 2016 for Windows, Office 2016 for Mac OX 10.8 or 10.9, and Office 2016 for Mac OS X 10.10+. These copies of Office are valid until one year after graduation or withdrawal.


Faculty/Staff – Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus

Part of every faculty or staff member’s individual Office 365 ProPlus license includes authorization to download the full version of the latest Microsoft Office suite on up to five personal computers. This currently means Office 2016 for Windows, Office 2011 for Mac OX 10.8 or 10.9, and Office 2016 for Mac OS X 10.10+. These copies of Office are valid as long as you are employed at Northeastern.

DO NOT install Office 365 ProPlus versions of Office on computers that you are not personally using. To install, you must tie that copy of Office to your Northeastern Office 365 account. This links all Office applications to your account, and provides access to your Northeastern resources and files. Just as you would not share your myNortheastern account with others, do not share your Northeastern Office 365 access.


Mobile Office Applications

Online Office Applications
