Microsoft 365 for Students

October 20th, 2020 | by

Due to the coronavirus pandemic and the resulting cancellation of most in-person events, our students – in particular, our new Bachelor’s students, who may have just moved to Aachen – have significantly fewer opportunities to get to know each other, share information about their studies, or meet privately.

In order to address this situation and provide support, the IT Center and the Center for Learning and Teaching Services (CLS) have now made the Microsoft 365 service available to all RWTH students.

The service provides the familiar Office applications – Word, Excel, and PowerPoint – but also makes it possible for students to use Outlook, OneNote, OneDrive, SharePoint, Sway, Forms, Flow, and PowerApps. Importantly, they can now use Microsoft Teams as a communication tool.

Please note that for licensing reasons, the Microsoft Office applications cannot be installed locally on the user’s computer.
