Your Office 365 & Free Software!

Hello Everyone!

We hope you are all having a great 2017 so far and are enjoying getting stuck into your studies once again. We’re reaching out to you today to remind you of some of the great software you can have for FREE because you are a student with Doncaster College which will help you with studies both on campus and at home.

As you may be aware, all of the students here at Doncaster College have access to your own student email which runs through Office 365. One of the major benefits of using Office 365 is that you all have access to Microsoft Office software which you can download and use on your personal PC or Mac.

You have access to Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint, One Drive, Calendar and much much more!

You can use the programs online as well if you do not want to download them. You can find out all about how to do this by reading the short guide which you can access here.

If you experience any trouble with this you can contact the IT Service Desk on 01302 553579 or email service.desk@don.ac.uk and someone will be happy to guide you through the process. For any other information on your Office 365 email please click here.
