Microsoft Office 2016 for Mac

Office 2016 for Mac will soon be available on campus for Mac OS users. There are a few things that need to be in place for Office 2016 to be installed on your Mac

You must be running at least Mac OS version 10.10.x. If you are not running Mac OS X 10.10 you can update your computer to the minimum level OS via Managed Software Center. Look for the Install Apple OS X in the computer list.

If this install is not available on your machine then it does not meet a minimum requirement for install. The minimum requirement for installing is:

A) Running at least Mac OS X 10.7.5 B) At least 6GB RAM. C) Sufficient disk space for download and install.

Default Install and Self Serve Options

Unlike the previous version of Office (2011) each application of the Office suite is available as a stand alone application. In order to avoid large installs (6+GB) and to reduce the amount of applications installed on the computers we will be defaulting to installing only Word and Outlook. These two items will show up in your Dock.

If you need to install the other applications in the Office 2016 suite you may do so from the Managed Software Center application.
