Current Geneseo student, faculty, and most staff members, can download and install a free copy of the Microsoft Office suite. Our license includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Microsoft Teams, Access (Windows only), and other Office 365 A5 apps and services. You can install Office 365 apps on up to five computers (macOS or Windows) and up to five mobile devices (smartphones or tablets).
What happens when my account is removed?
If or when you retire, graduate, or leave the college you will retain access to Office 365 web applications as long as your Geneseo account is active. If you require office desktop applications or your SUNY Geneseo account is removed, you will need to purchase Microsoft Office on your own. When your subscription expires, Office software applications will enter read-only mode, which means that you can view or print existing documents, but you can’t edit them or create new ones. To return to full Office functionality, you can purchase a subscription to Office by visiting Microsoft 365. You could also use Office Online for free with your geneseo.edu account or you can create a personal Microsoft account.
