Office "FREE" to Faculty and Staff

You can now download and install Microsoft Office on up to five devices of your choosing at NO COST to you. We have assigned you access to Office 365 ProPlus (the Microsoft Faculty and Staff Advantage). The Microsoft Faculty and Staff Advantage program is a software subscription for Office 365 ProPlus available to all Trent staff and faculty. It is provided under the University's Microsoft Office 365 Education plan. 
Unlike the Home Use Program (http://www.trentu.ca/it/userguides_MicrosoftHomeUseProgram.php) announced last year, the Office 365 ProPlus program allows you to install and use the Microsoft Office software as long as you are an employee of Trent University, as a licensee, while the Home Use Program provides you with the purchase of a perpetual license.

Finally, this program provides access to Microsoft Office software for your use and should not to be installed on a Trent imaged computer. Trent imaged computers will continue to be provided with all the necessary Microsoft Office software pre-installed.

Do not hesitate to contact us at it@trentu.ca should you have any questions regarding this program.
