Free Downloads for Families
What is Office 365?
Microsoft Office 365 gives students of San Lorenzo Unified School District access to the web-based versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote using OneDrive.
Based on the District's Microsoft licensing, students can download and install full versions of the Office Suite.
For Students and Families
Each student in grades 2-12 has an Office 365 account, which allows them to use:
- One Drive (like Google Drive, it’s cloud storage for files that can be shared…or not)
- Office Online (web-based version of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote
- Office downloads on computers, tablets, and Smart Phones as long as they are students at SLZUSD
Accounts will be deleted when students leave the District and software must be uninstalled.
Logging in to Office 365
Go to http://portal.office.com to log in to your District Office 365 account.

Accounts were generated through Active Directory and use the same username and password as your network login.
If the student's username is 12345, the username for Office 365 is firstname.lastname@example.org
The password is the same login password.
Office 365 Home Page
Once you log in, you will land on the Office 365 home page and immediately have access to the online versions of various office products.
Download Office on Computers, Tablets and Smart Phones
Our current licensing will allow every student to download Office on five computers, five tablets, and five phones in their household (potentially 15 devices) for free.
Free downloads are a part of the Pro+ license, and we receive Pro+ licenses for students in grades 2-12 at $0. Look for the “Download Office” link, and follow the onscreen directions.
Licenses are valid only for students in the District.
