For all of you who were on co-op, abroad, or just paying more attention to the “free Office” part of September’s newsletter, here’s some of the also-important stuff you might have missed.
Microsoft Office for Free
If you don’t already have the latest version of Office, sign in to the myNEU portal, find the Microsoft Student Advantage section under Self Service, and get a free copy for Mac or Windows through Northeastern’s partnership. Because Student Advantage is part of Office 365, you’ll also have access to the expanding number of Microsoft mobile apps and whatever version of Office comes out next.
The one hitch: To download, install and use any of this, you have to sign in with the special Office 365 username that Northeastern has set up for you. So check out the details here.
Printers Near You
Your assignment is due. Your professor wants a hard copy. You don’t have to go to the library, or to wish that you had class in a building with a printer you could grab just in time – now there are swipe-to-print locations in several residence halls and other new locations around campus.
Learn more about the Northeastern Printing Plan and the printer locations here.
Go Wireless at Home
Last year, in partnership with Housing and Residential Life, ITS expanded NUwave wireless network access within 17 university-owned residence halls. The goal this year is to have full access in all residence halls for the start of the 2015-2016 academic year. Learn more about that here.
For those of you in a hall that does not yet have NUwave, if you want to keep on top of when you’re getting it, bookmark this link – that chart is updated weekly.
