All U of T students have access to free copies of Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook)

So, I’m sorry if this isn’t new to you, but it is to me.  I’ve already finished an undergrad (plus OISE) and have now started a masters degree at U of T.  During this time, the mail server changed (we now have @mail.utoronto.com email addresses) to a Microsoft based online version of Outlook – which has at been visual improvement.

But to cut to the chase…

We have access to Office 365 – an online version of Outlook, Calendar, People, OneDrive, Tasks, Word Online, Excel Online, PowerPoint Online, and OneNote Online.  This is useful when making small adjustments, or viewing an attachment.  To access this just click “Office 365” when you are logged into http://www.mail.utoronto.ca

HOWEVER! most of us do the bulk of our writing on programs/apps “offline”.

I’ve been rocking my 2008 Mac version since the start of my undergrad (and have been using Pages for the past couple years… then converting to .docx when professors can’t handle .pdfs).

See the “Install Office on more devices”? (on the screenshot above)

You can install Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook all onto your Mac or PC by clicking Install.

It really is that easy.  All you need is your UTORid and password.
