Office 365 ProPlus for Students
This article applies to: Software Licensing
Thanks to Cornell's campus agreement with Microsoft, Cornell students can download and install, free:
- Microsoft Office 2016 for Windows, which is supported on Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.
- Microsoft Office 2016 for Mac, which is supported on the three most recent versions of macOS (that is, the newest release plus the two versions previous to that).
Free Office downloads are part of Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus services, which are available to Cornell students as a result of Microsoft's Student Advantage benefit.
