Microsoft Access for Mac

Question

Can Microsoft Access be installed on my Mac device?

Answer

Microsoft Access cannot be installed on macOS. Students who require Microsoft Access for academic use will need to install a virtual machine on their Mac device to run the Windows operating system to allow for MS Access installation.

VirtualBox is a free virtualization application available to BGSU students. Please contact ITS for assistance with installing VirtualBox.

Once VirtualBox is installed, students can install Office (including Microsoft Access) on the Windows virtual machine.
