Home use (staff and students)

The University has subscribed to Office 365 which allows us to provide staff and students with a free copy of the Microsoft Office suite, which you can use on up to five different devices (please note that for a full version of Office 365 you will need to pay a subscription fee to Microsoft). Your subscription will remain valid as long as you are a student at the University of York (and connect online every 7-10 days).

You can continue the subscription after you leave the University if you wish - note that you will need to pay a subscription fee to Microsoft at this point.
