·         Close all the programs that are running on your computer

·         Click on the Windows Home button

·         Select All Programs

·         Then Microsoft System Center 2012

·         Configuration Manager

·         Software Center – this may take a few minutes to populate.  Once It does, you will see “tabs” across the top

·         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

·         Select Office 2016

·         Click the blue install button


On a university-owned Mac:

·         Close all the programs that are running on your computer

·         Use the Search/Spotlight (upper right corner) and type Self Service and launch the app

·         You will be prompted to log in.  Use your UNCW username and password

·         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 on your Mac, 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.
