Microsoft Office 2016 for Mac Released

July 10, 2015

Office 2016 for Mac, Microsoft's first update to the software since 2011, is now available. As part of CIT's campus-wide Office 365 offering, all students, faculty, and staff can download and install the update for free on up to 5 Macs in addition to 5 tablets or iPads.

Users should be warned, however, that the software requires over 6 Gb of free hard drive space; if you're lacking room on your drive, do some disk cleanup before installing.

To start the download, visit http://portal.office.com and enter your Oberlin email address and password.

Be sure to enter your email address in the form "jdoe@oberlin.edu," not "jane.doe@oberlin.edu."

If you run into problems downloading or installing Office 2016, please email the CIT Help Desk at cit@oberlin.edu, visit us in the Academic Commons (Monday through Friday, 10:00 AM–noon and 1:00–4:30 PM), or call 440-775-8197.
