How Do I Install Microsoft Office on a University-Owned Computer?


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.

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

 

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 into Casper.


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