All Queensland state school teaching staff and students can download multiple free copies of the latest Microsoft Office 365 to their personal home computers and mobile devices.
Some non-teaching staff are also entitled to use their departmental account to download and activate Microsoft Office applications on their personal devices.
Casual staff, cleaners, miscellaneous workers, and non-departmental staff including contractors and volunteers are no longer entitled to use their departmental account to download and install the Microsoft Office Apps suite on their personal devices. These staff will be required to purchase their own copy of Microsoft Office or their own Microsoft 365 subscription if they wish to use the Office Apps on their personal devices.
School teaching staff and students already have the correct licence assigned. Other eligible staff will need a licence assigned to their account prior to installation. These staff will need to log a request to Service Centre to obtain a subscription prior to installation. Please use the online form at the Service Catalogue Online, or call the Service Centre on 1800 680 445.
Any staff member who has previously installed Office will have the licence already, but those who have not installed it previously will need to log a request to Service Centre to obtain a subscription prior to installation. Please use the online form at the Service Catalogue Online , or call the Service Centre on 1800 680 445.
Microsoft Office 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 is downloaded on departmental devices, as these devices already have a licenced copy of Microsoft Office.
Your Office subscription lasts for as long as you’re a Queensland state school student or appropriately entitled school-based staff member.
