Office 365 suite is available for all Alamo Colleges District students, faculty, and staff.
Students can download the Office 365 suite which includes Word, Outlook, PowerPoint, Excel, and more. Downloading the Microsoft Office applications provides more features and tools then the web applications. We highly recommend students download the office applications to gain the most from their free Microsoft subscription and be able to save all of their files through OneDrive.
Note: Both Mac and Windows users can follow the same steps below to access and install Microsoft Office. However, Mac users may experience issues downloading Office 365. If you experience any errors when downloading the Microsoft office suite, please contact the IT help desk.
