Microsoft Office 2016 available for staff

9 October 2017

As of 1 January 2018 Microsoft Office 2016 will automatically installed on all work places that are still running Microsoft Office 2010. However, until then you can already try or install the newest version of Office yourself.

Try before you install

You can familiarise yourself with Office 2016 through the Remote Workplace. You will find both Office 2010 and Office 2016 there. Do you work with documents, spreadsheets or databases, which contain macros and Visual Basic code? Then it may be useful to check whether these still work in Office 2016.

Install it yourself 

Do you want to install the latest version of Office? You can do this yourself through Start > Control Panel. If you install Office 2016, you cannot return to the old version of Office. Read the installation manual for more tips.


Do you experience problems when using or installing Office 2016? Please contact the ISSC Helpdesk:
