We have some exciting news to share with staff and students this September.  All staff and students have the option to use the Office 365 ProPlus service to download the latest version of Office onto their home and personal devices for free.

Download Office 365 Proplus from this site. You just need to enter your (you can find it on your Library card) and hit the register button. The page will update to say University of Bath. Then enter your University password. You can use Office 365 ProPlus on up to five devices. Please note, this is for personal use and not devices you use for work.

You don't have to buy anything to get access to full versions of the following software on up to five of your personal devices:

  • Word
  • Excel
  • Access
  • Powerpoint
  • Publisher
  • Outlook

Your licence lasts for as long as you are a student or staff member at the University. When you leave you will be given a thirty day grace period, after which time your access to Office365 Pro Plus will convert to a read only format unless you decide to buy a  licence yourself.
