Notice: Microsoft Office 2016 for Mac: End of Support Advisory (Nov 10 03:51 pm)

Microsoft has ended support for Office 2016 for Mac and will no longer provide product or security updates. As a result, ITS has ended support for Office 2016 for Mac on October 13, 2020.
For UH users running this old version, ITS recommends upgrading to a newer, supported version of Microsoft Office, such as Office 2019 for Mac. See for information on ITS’ supported versions. While unsupported Office applications may continue to function, continued use could result in being exposed to potentially harmful security risks.
Options to Upgrade
The following are a few options for UH users to acquire Microsoft Office software through personal or non-UH Departmental funds:
ITS Site Licensing offers Microsoft applications available for purchase by UH Departmental funds. Products purchased through this program can be made by University of Hawaii Departments and must be for UH-related use only:
If you previously purchased Office from UH Site Licensing and have Software Assurance (SA), you may be entitled to upgrade to a supported version of Microsoft Office. See for more information.
