IT Services Alerts - Microsoft Office 2011 for Apple Mac - IS Services Support Statement

First Posted: 26th January 2011

On 26th October 2010 Microsoft released the latest version of their Office suite of applications for Apple Mac, Microsoft Office 2011. The Microsoft Office 2011 suite includes updated versions of Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint and includes Outlook for email, in place of Entourage.

IS Services Support for Office 2011 Applications

Please note that at present IS Services are not yet providing training and support for Microsoft Office 2011 applications and so we strongly recommend Microsoft Office 2008 for College Mac users wishing to install or use Microsoft Office, or its component applications. For instance, the supported email client for staff using the new MS Exchange based email service on Apple Macs remains Microsoft Entourage 2008.

Installing Microsoft Office 2011

Although not currently supported by IS Services, Microsoft Office 2011 is available to College staff from the IS Services Helpdesk under the MS Campus licence.
