Office 365 for students

Emerson students, faculty, and staff have free access to two different online productivity suites: Google Apps for Education and Microsoft Office 365. Due to its versatility, ease of use, and unlimited storage, we generally recommend people use Google Apps for Education. See our guide here for more information on it!

If you would rather use Office 365, here’s how to get started:

Please note: These instructions are for students and faculty. Staff members, please contact the help desk for assistance setting up Office 365.

  1. Visit office.com and click on the link for students and teachers to get Office.

  3. Office 365 will send you an email that looks like the one below. Click Yes, that's me, which will take you to a web page to finish creating your account.
