August 28, 2012

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — The University of Florida is partnering with the On The Hub network to provide free Microsoft Office software for all enrolled Gators.

The free software downloads are available to all undergraduate, graduate, law and medical students.

The following software suites are available:
■ Microsoft Office 2010
■ Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac
■ Microsoft Windows 7 Upgrade
■ Microsoft Office 2007

Visit e-academy’s On The Hub site to initiate a download or learn more about the program. Free e-academy downloads are supported directly by e-academy’s On The Hub support team.

The UF Computing Help Desk Wiki has very useful information on using the On The Hub service. It is recommended that students read the, “How do I download” article available on the Help Desk Wiki prior to initiating their software download.

Under UF’s campus-wide Microsoft license agreement, all faculty and staff can purchase MS Office for $15 at four campus locations: the UF Computing Help Desk in the HUB, Reitz Union Bookstore, UF&Shands Bookstore, and Levin College of Law Bookstore.

Technical support from Help Desk staff is available for Microsoft media purchased through UF’s campus-wide license agreement. Other software is also available to the UF community at greatly reduced prices. Visit UFIT’s software page for more information, or stop by the Help Desk, HUB 132.
