Microsoft Windows and Office
You will find Microsoft Office in the basic software package on your PC. Office gives you access to applications such as Word, Excel, Outlook and PowerPoint. Office 2016 is the standard once Windows 10 has been installed. Office 365, the successor to Office 2016, now offers you the customary applications and also access to cloud storage via OneDrive.
Office 365 and OneDrive offer various options for working from various locations and on different devices. This offers you:
- to work with Office applications via the online Office portal or with apps on a smartphone or tablet
- to securely save files from your university workstation (P drive) to OneDrive
- easy access to your files
- the ease of working together online – and saving travel and time.

Staff who are guests of the university may not have automatic access to Office 365 and OneDrive. If you need access but you are unable to install Office 365, please contact the helpdesk (phone) 8888 to request access.
