Free Microsoft Software for NYC Public School Families

Parents and guardians of a student enrolled in a NYC public school are now able to download Microsoft software from studentoffice.net, at no cost, on up to five of their family’s computers and five of their family’s tablets, smart phones, or other mobile devices.

Free products include:

  • Office 365 ProPlus on Windows: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Skype for Business, Access, InfoPath and Publisher installed on Windows
  • Office for Mac Professional 2016: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote
  • Office for iPad, iPhone, Android: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote
  • Cloud service
  • Office Online

To download, visit studentoffice.net and enter either of the following:

  • Student’s date of birth AND a parent phone number, or
  • Parent email


The information that you enter to claim the download must match the information on your Blue Card on file with the school. Therefore, it is necessary that ATS have the most up-to-date parent contact information in order for the verification and download process to be successful. If you have trouble claiming the download, you can visit a school’s main office to make any necessary changes to your contact information.

There is no deadline to claim the free software. Families may download the software as long as they have a child enrolled in a NYC public school.

As Office 365 is a Microsoft Cloud product, parents must create a Microsoft Cloud account in order to download the software. The studentoffice.net website contains not only information on how to create an account, download the software, but also answers to “Frequently Asked Questions.” For technical assistance families may contact Microsoft Customer Service at: 1 (800) 642-7676.
