How do I install Microsoft Office from my Trine Student or Staff email?

Microsoft and Trine University have a license agreement which allows current Trine students to share the Office365 and Office 2016 application domain.

To install Office 2016 on your personal computer


·       You should uninstall any other versions of Microsoft Office from your computer. We recommend installing and running Piriform CCleaner on your registry after you uninstall the software.

 You will need to remain connected to the internet throughout the installation. This could take 10-30 minutes depending on your connection speed.

·       Log into your Outlook email through 

·       In the upper right corner, select "Install Office"

·       Select your Operating System, version, and select “Install”. You can decide whether you need a 32 or 64 bit version by what Operating System you have (32 or 64 bit).

·       You may be prompted for your user credentials when you open Outlook 2016 for the first time. You may also see a warning that you must quit and restart Outlook.

Please close and restart Outlook, and input your credentials again if prompted, and the warning will go away.
