Microsoft Office is a powerful application suite that allows for creation of presentations, publications, documents and spreadsheets just to name a few. Office 2013 is the current version of this productivity software available on campus computers. This version includes changes and improvements that make Office easier to use than ever before.
If you would like to use Microsoft Outlook with your Gmail@Valpo account, please place an ITicket with the Help Desk.
Valparaiso University’s license agreement with Microsoft now provides Office 365 to our current students, faculty, and staff for free.

To get your complimentary Office 365 software for your personal computer, visit Office.com/GetOffice365 and follow the on-screen instructions. Contact the Help Desk or visit Install Office on your PC or Mac with Office 365 for installation assistance.
A list of FAQs is available in the ITicket knowledge base.
NOTE: Office 365 software should not be installed on your University-owned computer, as it will cause conflicts with the Office 2013 software.
