How can I load O365 on my home system?

How do I get Office 365 on my home computer?

Office 365 is available to current students and employees at Tacoma Community College. The software can be installed on up to five personal devices which include PC, MAC, iPad, and Mobile phones (Android and iPhones). Windows phones and tablets should have Office already available. Soon after leaving the college, your O365 subscription will expire. You will have access to the software for up to 30 more days at which time the software goes into reduced functionality mode. Once that occurs, a key for the software will need to be purchased to continue using it. While the subscription is active, the device will need to connect to the Internet at least once every 25 days to allow the software to verify subscription.

This Personal Use License is for your own devices, do not install this version of O365 on your campus issued PC or laptop.  

Please Note:  Office 2016 is not supported for operating systems older than Windows 7. If you have Vista or Windows XP you will not be able to run Office 2016.
