For those who don’t know, Office 365 University is a subscription for full- and part-time enrolled university and college students, faculty, and staff members. You can also install the Office 365 on up to two PCs or Macs for use by a single person.


Office 365 University normally costs $79.99 for 4 years, and it includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote, Access, and Publisher. If you’re going to take advantage of this offer, then initially you’ll get three months of free access, but if you share the offer on Facebook via the Share button after you enter your email address, then you will get an email with a link for an extra 3 months of Office 365 University.

Once the promotion ends, the Office apps will go into read only mode. SkyDrive files will still remain accessible, but if you have more than 7GB of storage in your account, then you won’t be able to add more files, until you upgrade your account.


Just in case if you don’t have .edu email address, then you won’t be able to take advantage of this promotion. But you can still try out Office 365 Home Premium for free for 1 month. So go ahead, hit the below link to redeem this offer.
