The Question

I don't have Word on my computer. Where can I go to type my paper?

Our Answer

You can use the Word web app available free from Microsoft and work from any computer with an Internet connection. 

  • Go to
  • Login in with your student email address and password in the upper right corner (the account is already linked to OneDrive)
  • Click the Create menu
  • Select Word

You will also find web apps for Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote at this site.

Another cool thing about OneDrive is that, after you create documents here, you can save them "in the cloud" rather than on your computer or a USB drive. Microsoft gives you 15 GB to store these files or any others you want to upload. Anything stored here is available to you from any computer in the world.

Of course, you can always use a computer in one of the Library & Learning Centers; all computers have the Microsoft Office Suite installed. Current Library & Learning Center hours are available online.
