Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

Laurier’s Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) department is pleased to announce an exciting new benefit for current Laurier students. The university has made an agreement with Microsoft to provide Office to every student for free.

This automatically updatable, subscription-based software ensures that our students will always have the latest version of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote, as well as one terabyte (TB) of storage through OneDrive for Business for as long as they’re a student at Laurier and the program continues.

With this version of Office students are able to:

  • Install Office on up to five compatible PCs and Macs, plus five tablets
  • Use one TB OneDrive storage for automatic device syncing
  • Use the same programs as faculty members to ensure full file fidelity

This offer is available to all students at Laurier. To get your complimentary Office software, visit and follow the on-screen instructions. Contact the ICT Service Desk at or visit install Office on your PC or Mac with Office 365 for installation assistance. 

The Tech Shop in the Bookstore at both the Waterloo and Brantford campuses can also assist you with setting up your subscription for a nominal fee of $10.
