For Students/Faculty/Staff and personal computers

All current PSU students, faculty, and staff are eligible to get a free copy of Microsoft Office suite (Word, Excel, Powerpoint,etc) to use on their personal computers (Windows or Mac). The software is provided as part of a Microsoft Office 365 license managed by OIT. Getting the software is based on having an active Odin account. The use of the software ends when your Odin account is deactivated. OIT Affiliate Account holders are not eligible to a license.

This license is only for a downloadable copy of the software. Access to Office 365 Cloud apps is not enabled.

Learn more about how to get the software at OIT’s website.

On Equipment belonging to PSU

PSU has a site license for Microsoft Office for installation on PSU-owned hardware.  If you are on a CAT supported Tier 1 or Tier 2 Windows computer, you will have Office already installed. If you are running a Tier 3 system in MCECS, we can provide you with a site licensed copy of Office (for Windows or Mac). The system has to have been purchased through PSU (with PSU or grant funds or officially donated to PSU). This cannot be installed on privately owned equipment.

On personal equipment (deprecated)

PSU provides faculty and staff with access to the Microsoft Home Use Program. This provides employees with a highly discounted copy of Microsoft Office for use on home/personal computers. Details can be found at this link:
