Office 2016 available for Mac users at UGA

Wednesday, July 15, 2015

An upgraded version of Microsoft Office is now available for University students, faculty and staff who use Mac computers.

Office 2016 includes all of the programs in the Microsoft Office suite – such as Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook and OneNote – but with improved functionality for formatting documents, spreadsheets and presentations.

Mac users at the university can update to Office 2016 by logging into their web-based UGAMail account and clicking on the gear icon in the top right hand corner to access Office 365 settings. Click on the Software tab and you will see an option to download and install Office 2016 for Mac.

You do not have to uninstall any previous versions of Office before installing the latest version. Full instructions on how to download and install the latest version of Office are available on the Microsoft Office ProPlus section of the EITS Help Desk website,

Office 2016 should be available to Windows users later this year. Windows users at the university can download the latest version of Office for Windows, Office 2013, by logging into their web-based UGAMail account.
