    6. Once you click install, the installer will be downloaded. When that download is complete, run the installer to install the Microsoft Office 365 software and finish the installation. Installation can take some time depending on the speed of your computer, so if you’re using a laptop we would strongly suggest not doing the installation over battery power as this could run out before installation is finished.

    7. If prompted, activate Microsoft Office 365 using your University of Canterbury credentials (username@uclive.ac.nz and your password).

    If you have any problems with the installation or use of Microsoft Office 365, please don’t hesitate to contact the IT Service Desk for assistance.
