Many computers ship with either the Microsoft Works or Word Perfect office productivity suites (word processor, spreadsheet, presentation software, etc.). While these products are very functional, we recommend an upgrade to the Microsoft Office suite of products for more flexibility and compatibility.
Heidelberg University students can purchase the complete Microsoft Office software suite for their computer at a substantial educational discount from the Heidelberg University Bookstore. For that reason, we recommend that students wait until they arrive on campus to purchase this software if their computer is not already so equipped.
University-owned computers in laboratories and classrooms across campus are equipped with Microsoft Office; in addition, some instructors may require specific packages in their courses.
For more information on the Microsoft Office student purchase program, contact the Heidelberg University Bookstore by phone at (419) 448-2170 or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
