How do I use my college email account to download my copy of Microsoft Office 2016?

« Go Back


Article SummaryWith your college LiveAC email account, you can use Office 365 online, or download Office to your College computer.
With your college LiveAC email account, you have access to Office 365.

Before you install Office:
  • You can only have 1 copy of Office installed at a time on a computer - if you already have a copy installed, it will be overwritten or it will need to be removed.
  • Ensure you choose the 32-bit option when installing. Failure to do this can cause errors on your computer.
Note: The MS Office that you download from Office 365 is tied to your LiveAC account. This means if your status changes from current student to alumni, Microsoft may at any time disable your copy as it is paid for by student fees. 

To download and install Office 2016 using your college email account

  1. Log into your Live AC account -
  2. Click on the gear icon on the far right.
  3. Select Office 365, and select Install Office 2016.
  4. Follow the instructions on screen to download and install the MS Office setup file. Note: It will take a minute to install.
  5. When completed, click on the gear icon again, and select Office 365 settings.
  6. On the next screen, select Settings from the left menu.
  7. This will display all the applications that have installed as part of Office 2016.
For additional help with MS Office, see the Microsoft support website for Office.
