UCSD offers a Microsoft Office license associated with your UCSD Active Directory account (you have this license even if you check your email on Gmail) that can install Office on up to five devices. Instructions to install Office are as follows:

Navigate to office365.ucsd.edu in your browser

Sign in to Office365 with your full UCSD email address and UCSD password.

Select "Install Office", and then "Office 365 Apps"

Note for DSS staff: If your computer is department-owned, Office is likely already installed. If not, you may not have administrator privileges so you may not be able to install Office. If you need Office, please contact your SSCF representative and we'll be happy to help.
