Office Suite for Students and Faculty and Staff

Tags office
Everyone in the LETU community is provided with the ability to open and edit Microsoft office files. All users may use Microsoft's web-app versions of Word, Excel, Powerpoint and other Office products.

In addition, all students and full-time employees have access to an optional install of the local desktop Office client. More details on how to use each of these options is below.



We strongly recommend all users set up OneDrive for Business to sync to their local desktop (Click here for instructions).

This will allow you to have a local copy of your documents which are stored in OneDrive and be able to both work with files in the Office Web Apps as well as save new files to your OneDrive from email or other sources.


Office File Support for Students and Full-time Faculty/Staff
