How do I get Word on my personal computer?

All computers on campus have Word pre-installed. You can find a lab or an empty computer that is available for Bucknell University members to use.

However, if you want to get it on your own computer, and if you are a faculty or staff member, you can install Word from myBucknell.

In myBucknell, scroll down until you see "Technology Support" (1) on the left hand side, click on it, and then select "Tools and Software" (2).


From the Tools and Software page select the Software Distribution link. Now you will see a list of software. This will vary depending on your position at the University.

If you have access to Microsoft Office, it will be on the list.

Select Microsoft Office, and then check the "I agree" box on the next page. Then click "Next" for a download link. You will need to download and run the Microsoft Office installer.

If you can't see Microsoft office on the list click here to install Office 360 for students which include Powerpoint 2016.
