Office 365 and university email

Office 365 is a widely used suite of programmes and apps. It is free to use for students of most UK universities. If you need more help, please contact the Library.


If you do not have the university email address yet, download Office 365 and start using it with a month-long trial access.

Activate licence

As soon as your enrolment is completed, you will get the university email address and password for all university services. Use them to activate your free Office 365 licence by adding these details to the Office 365 account.

Install on your phone

To install Office 365 apps on your phone, go to App Store (for iOS) or Google Play (for Android) and search for the individual apps you want, e.g. Word, Outlook, OneNote etc.

University email

To add your university email to your phone, either:

  • Download an Outlook app to receive your university email separately from your personal email (download for Apple or Android)

  • or add your university email account to the same app you use for all your personal emails (in iPhone: Settings - Passwords & Accounts - Add Account - Exchange - enter your university email address and add a description, e.g. Uni Email, then Next - Sign In - enter the password).
