All Queensland state school staff and students can download multiple free copies of the latest Microsoft Office to their personal home computers and mobile devices.
Students and staff will need to use their school email address to sign in. Students who don’t have a school login, school email account and password should contact their school's Managed Internet Service (MIS) administrator or class teacher. The administrator will help students activate their school login.
School staff will need a licence assigned to their account prior to installation. 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 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.
Your Office subscription lasts for as long as you’re a Queensland state school student or school-based staff member.
For PC and Mac, visit the
Office Portal, login using your school email address, click through to install and follow the onscreen process.
For tablets and smartphones, download from your app store and sign in with your school email address.
If you have trouble, please refer to the instructions on how to download and install Microsoft Office 2016 to your personal home computers:
