We have extended our Office 365 licence to enable students to use OneDrive and download Office 365 for free on multiple devices.

Your student username and password enable you to use the University’s licence for Office 365 on up to five PCs or Macs for free. You’ll be able to use the University’s Office 365 licence during your studies here at Westminster and it will expire after your graduation.

Once you get started with Office 365 you will be able to co-edit your work using Office applications online, in real time – anywhere, any time, on any device.

If you are signing up for the first time to start using OneDrive and download the Office package, you will need to:

  1. Go to the Office 365 login page.
  2. Enter your username, which is your student University username followed by @westminster.ac.uk. Your student University username is w followed by the first 7 digits on your student ID card. For example, if your University username is w1234567, your Office 365 username will be [email protected].  Do not confuse this username with your student Gmail, which ends with @my.westminster.ac.uk.
  3. Enter your University password.

Your Office 365 username is not an email address – your student Gmail account remains the official University email account.

Please note: If you have already signed up to Office 365 using your student Gmail account ending in @my.westminster.ac.uk you must stop using this. Read the guide on how to access Office 365 with my Gmail account.

For more information read the FAQs on Office 365. If you have a problem getting started, please contact the Service Desk.

Whenever using University IT facilities and services you’ll need to make sure you follow the IT security and use policy.
