Office 365

All Oxford students are able to get one free copy of Microsoft Office, which you can keep using as long as you are here (you have to register for it every year, which takes 5 minutes). It is called Office 365, and it contains all the Office programs you would normally use (Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook etc.)

It also has OneDrive built in, which allows you to save your documents online, and access them anywhere you have an internet connection (saving you the trouble of doing backups, and meaning you can access any documents you save there from any college or personal computer without having to carry around a memory stick).
