Installing Microsoft Office 365 (Android)

Issue/Question

How do I get Microsoft Office for free?

Environment

  • Android
    • Office 365

Cause

WKU Retirees and Part-Time Staff are not elligible for Microsoft Office for personal devices. Reitrees and Part-Time Staff are elligible only for an email address. 

Office 365 Pro Plus includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and other titles depending on platform. Under this program, current Faculty, Full-Time Staff and Students may install the software on up to five devices/computers.

These are mobile applications, not web or cloud apps. The software will remain active and usable for as long as you are current Faculty, Full-Time Staff, or Student.  Based on Microsoft’s licensing requirements, it's not offered to past students who have graduated or leave WKU.
