Microsoft Office 365

Phillips Exeter Academy provides students and employees Microsoft Office 365 on up to five Windows or Mac computers. Office 365 comes with Word, Excel, PowerPoint and for the first time is available to you through computer, tablet, mobile and web interfaces. 

Note: Upon graduation, withdrawal, or end of employment from Phillips Exeter Academy, your subscription to Microsoft Office 365 will expire.

Installing Office 365

  1. Uninstall any pervious version of Office on your computer.  New versions will be installed when Office 365 is set up.  Office 365 provided by Microsoft Campus may have different options than a standard installation.
  2. Go to https://login.microsoftonline.com/ and login with your @exeter.edu email address.
  3. Follow prompts to Install office on your Windows or Mac computer.
  4. Office 365 downloads as a complete package, so there is no ability to choose which applications to download.
  5. After the download, the installation process will start automatically.  Office 365 will install Office 2016 on Windows or MS Office 2016 on Macs depending on OS.

Installing Office 365 on Tablet or Mobile Devices

Microsoft offers Office 365 on multiple device types from largest desktop down to your pocket-sized mobile phone.  The installation process is similar but there are a couple of things to remember when working on your files through a different device.

  • iPad/iPhones and Android phones/tablets require separate apps to run applications
  • Your tablet or phone will not count toward your limit of 5 devices to manage
  • Download applications from the App Store or Google Play Store on your device
  • Log in using your @exeter.edu account

Check out the Installation Guide for more information and links to download apps onto your phone or tablet devices.
