Office 365 is available free to ALL students, supported by ICT services. Office 365 has applications such as Word, Excel, Powerpoint and OneDrive.

How do I get it?

Go to and login with your University email address ( and password. You will then be forwarded to an area where you can configure your OneDrive and install Microsoft Office applications.

Changing your password

It is recommended that you register for self-service password resets.  This will give you the option to change your password without having to contact ICT. 

Please note that you will need to enter your existing password to be able to register an alternative email address and security question so this needs to be done before the need to change your password.

Password trouble-shooter

ICT Services have developed a trouble-shooting guide to help you change your password, or get back into your account if you forget your password or are locked out.  Click here to find out more.
