Current students of Sul Ross State University have access to the Office Suite, Word, Excel, Powerpoint, and other applications through a download link in Microsoft 365 (https://office.com). Only current student, those that are actively attending classes (does not include those auditing a class), are licensed for the download.
Under the agreement between Sul Ross and Microsoft, you are allowed to download and install any of the Microsoft Office applications on as many as five devices, including desktops, laptops, tablets and smart phones.
Here are some resources to assist you in the download and installation processes.

We changed the way you access Office 365 and OneDrive for Business. In the past, it was common to go to the Sul Ross Home Page (www.sulross.edu), and click on Office 365 in the Quicklinks menu. That link has been removed and access to Office 365 and OneDriveforBusiness is now through mySRSU, the Sul Ross portal. View these quick videos below for how you access these two helpful web applications today.
Over the last several months, OIT has been working toward a university-wide implementation of Office365, Microsoft’s recent offering that places many of their most popular pieces of software, Word, Excel, Powerpoint and others, in the cloud. With this implementation, all students, faculty and staff have access to download Microsoft Office and install it on a maximum of five personal computers.
Also included in Office365 are two relatively new features, OneDrive for Business and Sharepoint. Both of these applications allow files to be stored, safely and securely, in the cloud. Having your files in the cloud allows access to them anyplace you have an internet connection and on any number of devices including desktops, laptops, tablets and smart phones, and may be shared with anyone. A primary differentiator between OneDrive and Sharepoint is that OneDrive is primarily for your own files while Sharepoint is best suited to departmental and workgroup uses.
This service is available NOW for all Sul Ross faculty, staff and students. Go to our Office365 page and learn how you can download, install and use this software.
