Microsoft Office 2016 free for all faculty, staff and students

By Randy Hollowell, IT services

There are not many words in the English language better than “free.” That is why IT services is excited to remind everyone that Microsoft Office 2016 for Windows, Apple OS X and mobile devices is free for all Miami faculty, staff and students for use on personal devices.

The software is available through Miami’s Microsoft Office Pro Plus portal. This means the entire Office 2016 suite is available to the university community through an agreement between Miami and Microsoft.

Miami’s agreement allows you to install Office on up to 15 devices (five computers, five tablets, and five mobile devices), and you may use the software for as long as you are affiliated with the university.

To download the software, please visit the appropriate Office Pro Plus portal:

If you have questions or need additional assistance accessing Microsoft Office Pro Plus, please contact the IT services support desk at 513-529-7900 or  Also, follow us on Twitter (@MiamiUIT).
