Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus


With the Office 365 ProPlus Student Advantage program, students are licenced to download the entire Office 365 ProPlus suite. Students are allowed up to five installations of the software to their personal computers for free. Versions are available for PC, Mac, Windows 8 tablet, Windows RT devices, iPad and smartphones. Their licence will continue until they leave Queen's.


With this new student program, Office 365 ProPlus will be available free to students attending schools that have licensed Microsoft Office for all its employees. When Queen's implemented Microsoft Exchange Server as the new email and calendaring solution for staff, faculty and graduate students, Microsoft Office was licenced for all staff, faculty and graduate students as well.
