Office Productivity

Active faculty and students at Middlebury College, the Middlebury Institute of International Studies in Monterey, Middlebury Language Schools and Breadloaf School of English are able to use the full Office 365 suite and download the applications onto their personal computers.  Active staff at these locations who use a computer for their daily work will also have the ability to download the full Office suite.

Populations not covered by the full Office 365 suite are inactive students, faculty emeriti, retirees, alumni, contractors and short-term employees.

Microsoft Office for Personal Computers

LibreOffice, a free alternative to Microsoft Office with comparable features, may also be of interest.


Adobe Creative Cloud suite is now available for installation on personally-owned computers by Middlebury Undergraduate College & Institute faculty, staff, and students.

Visit http://go/getadobe/ for installation instructions.


Autodesk offers free versions of their design software to students, educators, and educational institutions — including AutoCAD, Revit, Maya, and more.  These free versions include the same features as their costly counterparts.  The only difference is that files created with the free software include watermarks stating that they are “for educational use only.”


ITS strongly recommends the use of anti-virus software on personal computers.  Visit http://go/getAV for information about a few of the more reputable, freely available, anti-virus solutions.
