Students around the Globe that use Macs and iDevices May be Eligible to Receive Free Microsoft Office 365


Last week, at a public event held by the New York City Department of Education, New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito announced free Office for all of their 1.1M students plus teachers. The room—filled with students and teachers—erupted with cheers. But New York is not alone. Now millions of students around the world that use Macs, iPads and/or PC's are eligible for Microsoft's free Office offer.


Microsoft states that millions of students around the world are eligible for free Office from their school and today they're announcing that they've made it easy for all eligible students globally to sign up themselves to get Office 365 and install free Office.


That includes the 5.5 million eligible students in Australia, the nearly 5 million eligible students in Germany, 7 million more in Brazil, 1.3 million at Anadolu University in Turkey, every student in Hong Kong and millions more. The offer will extend to Hebrew and Arabic students later in March.

For more information, students should go to and teachers should go to and enter their school-provided email address.


Students getting Office at no additional cost to schools is a benefit Microsoft provides to education institutions that buy Office for faculty and staff. That means teachers can also sign up and enjoy all the benefits of Office connected to a cloud service, like using the OneNote Class Notebook.


Once signed up for Office 365 students will receive the following:


•The latest version of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Access and Publisher installed on up to five PCs or Macs and up to five mobile devices like iPad, Android and Windows tablets.

•1TB of storage on OneDrive you can use to store and share all your documents across all your devices.

•Office Online for in-browser editing, collaboration and co-authoring
