Office 2016 software now available

Office 2016 software is now available for download for faculty and staff. This includes the latest version of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and more. Before you begin downloading, there are some important considerations you need to be aware of first:

  • It is best to download the software when your computer is docked and you are able to let it run uninterrupted. For example, at the end of your work day.
  • Your computer will have to be rebooted for the software to be properly installed.
  • Older versions of Office will be overwritten – please make sure you understand these risks by reading our user guide and FAQs before downloading the software.

    • User guide
    • Microsoft Visio and Project software will be removed as part of the Office 2016 install; these can be reinstalled through the Software Center if needed. Please note if you’re simply viewing Visio documents, you do not require the software to do so.

If you have any questions, or concerns, please contact the IT Support Centre at 403-220-5555 or to help walk you through the process.
