Microsoft Office Suite available free for UofT Students (Mac and PC)

(This is an updated version of an old post.)

As a mac user and a UofT student, I use ‘mail’ on iOS and don’t bother with web-based Outlook or Office365 (the online versions of Word, Excel, Powerpoint).

However, as the title suggests, you can download (for FREE!) the ‘desktop’ versions (2016 update for Mac) of Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc.
