Question

How do I install Microsoft Office on a university-owned computer?

Answer

All faculty and staff have the ability to download Microsoft Office on university-owned computers.

On a university-owned PC:
 

  1. Close all the programs that are running on your computer.
     
  2. Click on the Windows Home button. 
     
  3. Search for "Software Center."
     
  4. Open "Software Center" – this may take a few minutes to populate.  Once It does, you will see tabs across the top.
     
  5. If you’ve never installed Office 2016, you will see it under “Available Software” – if it’s been installed on the computer and you want to reinstall, go to the “Installed Software” tab.
     
  6. Select "Office 2016".
     
  7. Click the blue install button.
     

On a university-owned Mac:
 

  1. Close all the programs that are running on your computer.
     
  2. Use the Search/Spotlight (upper right corner) and type "Self Service" and launch the app.
     

  3. You will be prompted to log in. Use your UNCW username and password (without the "@uncw.edu").
     

  4. On the right of the screen you will see software and can select "Office 2016" from there.

 

*Please note:  If you can’t locate Self Service, your machine is not enrolled in this program. To enroll your machine (university-owned computers only), please submit a ticket to the TAC to request enrollment.


If you need further assistance, please contact the TAC at 910-962-4357, or submit a service request.
