Microsoft Office

As an alternative to Google Docs , Microsoft Office is available to current students and employees at no cost on personally-owned and Luther-owned devices.

On personally-owned devices, students and employees can visit office.com and either use a web-based version of Office 365 or download the core Office 365 apps. Employees need to request download access from the Technology Help Desk. Office is preinstalled on Luther-owned computers, including those in labs and classrooms.

Signing In

At office.com or within a Microsoft Office application, sign in with your Luther Email address and Norse Key. If you’re asked, choose “Work or School Account”.

If you don’t know your Norse Key, contact the Technology Help Desk at 563-387-1000.

If this is the first time you’re signing in, you’ll need to turn on multi-factor authentication. Learn how to set up multi-factor authentication .

On personally-owned devices

Current students and employees can download the core Office 365 apps from Office.com. Employees need to request download access from the Technology Help Desk.:

  • After signing in, you’ll see an Install Office dropdown in the upper right, and within that dropdown, an option to download Office 365.
  • Run the small package that downloads to install the Office suite.
  • After install, you’ll be prompted to sign in to the downloaded version of Office.

Note: Mobile devices and Chromebooks can’t download and run the full Office suite.

On Luther-owned devices

Office is preinstalled on Luther-owned computers, including those in labs and classrooms. Learn more about labs and find an open lab workstation .

Training

If you’d like general help using Microsoft Office, a good place to start is Microsoft’s documentation or LinkedIn Learning . If your questions aren’t answered there, contact the Technology Help Desk.
