WHAT'S INCLUDED IN OFFICE 365?
Applications within Office 365 include:
- Windows: Word 2016, Excel 2016, PowerPoint 2016, OneNote 2016, Access 2016, Publisher 2016, Outlook 2016, Skype for Business, OneDrive for Business.
Microsoft recommends installing the 32-bit version of Office 365 which is the default installation even if you have a 64-bit computer. (Very few would need the 64-bit version. Learn more.)
- Note: Faculty/staff Windows users should keep the current version of Office already installed on university-owned computers. Do NOT install Office 365 on a university-owned computer. This is due to the incompatibility of newer versions of Lync (Skype for Business) that the university is using.
- Mac: Word 2016, Excel 2016, PowerPoint 2016, Outlook 2016 and OneNote 2016. (Lync 2011 is available in Campus Downloads.)
- iPad: Word, Excel and PowerPoint. (Skype for Business and OneNote are free, separate downloads.)
- iPhone/iPod Touch, Windows Phone and Android phones: Word Mobile, Excel Mobile and PowerPoint Mobile. (Lync Mobile and OneNote Mobile are free, separate downloads.)
HOW TO GET OFFICE 365 FOR WINDOWS OR MAC
- CRITICAL: If you are installing Office 365 on a computer with an existing version of Office, that version of Office must be uninstalled before installing Office 365.
TO AVOID COMPUTER PROBLEMS, use these resource links to uninstall Microsoft Office:
- Go to http://office.mu.edu/
- If you see an Office 365 login, enter your Marquette email address (in the form of email@example.com). Then simply place your cursor in the password field. Please note this may automatically redirect you to a new login prompt.
- You may be prompted to login. If so, enter your Marquette username (same one used for eMarq, CheckMarq and D2L) as
marqnet\username where "username" is your own Marquette username. Then enter your Marquette password (same one used for eMarq, CheckMarq and D2L).
- After successful login, you reach the Office 365 site.
(If you see the OneDrive Documents website upon login, click the black "Office 365" rectangle in the upper left to reach the Office 365 site.)
Before you install, see the system requirements for Windows or Mac. If your computer is ready for Microsoft Office 365, click Install now.

Note for some Mac users: If you receive an error message stating Office "cannot be installed because it was not downloaded from the Mac App store," follow these instructions. Go to Apple menu > System Preferences > Security & Privacy > General tab. Under the header "Allow applications downloaded from," select Mac App Store and identified developers. Close the preferences window. Relaunch the Office installer. (See more detailed instructions from Apple.)
