Free Office 2016 for Students


All Queensland state school students and staff can now download multiple free copies of Microsoft Office 2016 to their personal home computers and mobile devices. You’ll just need your school email address to sign in.

Microsoft Office 2016 is available for personal devices only, not devices owned by the department or part of a school network. Errors and conflicts will occur if Office 2016 is downloaded on departmental devices, as these devices already have a licenced copy of Microsoft Office. If staff uninstall the existing Office package on their department device and install Office 2016, the machine may require reimaging and it will not be supported by the department’s Service Centre.
The Office subscription lasts for as long as the student is studying at a Queensland state school, or the staff member is employed by the department.
Schools are encouraged to use the suite of materials available in the State Schools Update newsletter to promote the free Microsoft Office 2016 home offer to staff, students and their parents.
