While you're studying at the University, you can use Office 365 for free on up to five devices, using your student login credentials. 

Once you get started with Office 365, you'll be able to co-edit your documents using Office applications online, in real time - anywhere, anytime, on any devices. 

How to access Office 365

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

  1. Go to the Office 365 login page.
  2. Enter your Office 365 username, which is your University username followed by @westminster.ac.uk. Your University username is 'w' followed by the first seven 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 account, 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've already signed up to Office 365 using your student Gmail account ending @my.westminster.ac.uk, you need to stop using this.
