Download and Installation

  • Install Office on up to 5 PCs or Macs ...Yes 5!
  • Install Office Online Apps on your mobile devices (iOS, Android, & Windows)
  • Use for as long as you are enrolled as a student at MSU. 
  • Download speeds may vary dependent on your connection (wired or wireless) and because the installation package is quite large it can take a while.  The good news is that you can begin working in Office 365 shortly after the download begins.
