Microsoft Office 365 University was announced by Microsoft as a suite of office programs specifically tailored for students. While we have seen Microsoft try to come up with offerings that cater to the needs of students with the Home & Student edition of their popular Microsoft Office Suite, many will agree that Office 365 University is their best attempt so far. A clear indication of this is the great pricing of the software. One great price includes a four-year license for two computers, allowing you affordable access to the excellent features of the major Microsoft Office applications as you head to school. Additionally, the purchase will grant you more storage space on SkyDrive, which will greatly help with storage of academic material.

Microsoft Office 365 University features Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook, Publisher, OneNote, and Access, seven of the applications in the software suite that are most popular among students. This will give you the very best of Microsoft Office without cluttering your hard drive or slowing your computer down.
60 Free Skype Minutes per Month
