Office 365 for Students

What is Office 365?

Microsoft™ Office 365 is a package of online services including email, calendar, and OneDrive. It is now being provided free to Athabasca University students. As an AU student, you will also get several Microsoft™ Office licenses for your personal computers and devices, giving you free access to Microsoft™ products.

As of April 2021 the following Office products are included for Windows and Apple MacOS computers. These Office applications may be installed on up to 5 personal computers:

Many of these apps are also available for mobile devices, or via a web browser. Some applications, including Microsoft Access, are only available if you install Office 365 for Windows.

When will my student Office 365 account be ready?

All undergraduate students, and most graduate students, should receive their account activation email within 2 business days of enrollment in an AU course.
