Microsoft Office 2016 Home Use

To download Office on your personal mac, please follow the steps listed here: How to Install Office 365 on a personal device.

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 Installed
C) Sufficient disk space for download and install.

If you are unsure if your system meets the minimum requirements please contact the helpdesk for assistance.

Please make sure that you do not have any software that is incompatible with Mac OS 10.10.x or newer BEFORE doing any OS update. Remember your ability to do your work is more important than having the latest and greatest OS. If you are in doubt as to whether some hardware or software is compatible please contact the helpdesk and we will assist in finding out if any updates are available from the manufacturers.

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.

For a short time we will leave Office 2011 installed on your computer. Once we are satisfied that the updated software is working properly, we will automatically remove the Office 2011 folder and it's components from your system.

Outlook 2016 First Run

When you run Outlook 2016 for the first time you will be prompted to import your previous account from 2011.
