Staff and faculty in departments supported by LSIT are covered through the MCCA campus license agreement with Microsoft for UCSB owned or sponsored computers. If you are in a department under the College of Letters and Science, but not supported by LSIT, please go to your local desktop support for information about obtaining Microsoft Office.
If you are a faculty or staff member supported by LSIT, please request a download link through the LSIT Helpdesk. You will then be able to login with your UCSBnetID credentials.
If MS Office is installed on your machine (per the MCAA agreement), you may be prompted to 'register' the software again. Simply select the 'online activation' and click 'Next.' Typically this happens after major Windows updates.
