Q. How do I install Microsoft Office from my Trine Student or Staff email?

Microsoft and Trine University have a license agreement which allows current Trine students to share the Office365 and Office 2013 application domain.


To install Office 2016 on your personal computer


·       You should uninstall any other versions of Microsoft Office from your computer. We recommend installing and running Piriform CCleaner on your registry after you uninstall the software. https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download/standard


·       Log into your Outlook email through the web through myPortal. You will need to remain connected to the internet throughout the installation. This could take 10-30 minutes depending on your connection speed.

·       In the upper right corner, select the gear icon

·       Select “Office 365” toward the bottom of that menu

·       On the left side of the screen, select “Software” under the Settings tab.

·       Select your Operating System, version, and select “Install”. You can decide whether you need a 32 or 64 bit version by what Operating System you have (32 or 64 bit).

·       You may be prompted for your user credentials when you open Outlook 2016 for the first time. You may also see a warning that you must quit and restart Outlook.

Please close and restart Outlook, and input your credentials again if prompted, and the warning will go away.
