University of Lynchburg’s Department of Information Technology & Resources, in a partnership with Microsoft, provides currently enrolled student access to full versions of Microsoft Office and Office Mobile for FREE!
Depending on your operating system, here’s what Office includes:
- Office for PC includes Access, Excel, OneNote, Outlook, PowerPoint, Publisher, and Word
- Office for Mac includes Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, and Word
This software is only valid for actively enrolled students of University of Lynchburg. Due to licensing restrictions, Office 365 accounts will be terminated 60 days after the student’s last day of association with Lynchburg.
Lynchburg students, faculty, and staff are provided with an email account. All student email accounts are through Lynchburg’s Google Apps for Education program and are available to students once they enroll at Lynchburg. Faculty and staff email accounts are currently based on the Microsoft Exchange, but will soon be migrated to the Google Apps for Education platform.
Current students can access instructions by clicking the Technology option on MyLynchburg.

Features and Benefits
- Google Drive offers unlimited storage for files and backups.
- When you share a Google Docs file, you and others can view and edit the file simultaneously.
- You can easily share any file on your Google Drive with anyone else who has a Google account.
- Files on the Google Drive are accessible from any computer with a web browser and an internet connection.
- Most email systems (such as the College’s) limit the size of attachments; however, Google Drive lets you share files of any size.
- File recovery: Google Apps doesn’t use Lynchburg servers, so ITR has no way to recover lost or accidentally deleted files. If you want a backup of a Google Docs file, you must use the download function to create a copy on your computer.
- File formats: You can share any type of file on your Google Drive, but you can only work collaboratively on files that are created or converted to Google Docs format.
Current students can access instructions by clicking the Technology option on MyLC.
Students are all provided Papercut accounts, which provide a point system of 400 black and white printed pages per semester. Papercut printers are available in all computer labs, the Drysdale Student Center, the library, and Turner Gymnasium. There are also printers in the first year residence halls for which you must provide your own paper.
Current students can claim their Papercut points by clicking the financial option on MyLC.
