Frequently Asked Questions (Click to expand)
 Will Office be identical on a PC, a Mac, and a mobile device?

No. Office applications are tailored to work best on each platform and device. The Office applications available for Mac users and the version numbers may be different from those available for PC users.

 What is Microsoft OneDrive?

Microsoft OneDrive is free online storage that comes with your Microsoft account. It’s like an extra hard drive that’s available from any of the devices you use.  Each user gets 1TB (1000GB) of OneDrive space for free.  Use this space to store documents, music, movies, and share them with others.

 How long is this offer available to me?

These Microsoft Office licenses are free to any full/part-time student and any full/part-time member of the faculty and staff.  After you leave the institution, your account will be deactivated automatically along with your access to MBU applications (My MBU Access, Learn, Life, etc.).
