All current students and staff now have free access to Microsoft Office on your personal devices as part of Southern Cross University’s subscription to the Microsoft Office 365 platform.
Important: Your Office 365 subscription will only stay active while you remain enrolled/employed at SCU. You can then subscribe to the consumer version of Office 365 using the same software you already have installed.
As a student or staff member at SCU, you'll be able to use this software at no cost on up to 5 personal compatible PCs, Macs, and Mobile devices. Important to note: this is not applicable to SCU PC Computers. The University's standard operating system includes this as a part of the basic Universities PC operating system.
For Microsoft Office for your computer, follow these instructions:
- Click on this link to the Office 365 Software page.
- Sign in with your SCU email login credentials.
- On the installation page select your language and click install. The download will then begin.
For the Microsoft Office apps on iOS and Android:
- Download Word, Excel, PowerPoint from your device's app store.
- When prompted, sign in with your SCU email login credentials (this will unlock full editing capability)
