Microsoft removed MS Access from their Personal versions of Office 365.  HOWEVER, it is available in the Office 365 ProPlus and MS Imagine Premium Program for free.  

How to get Office 365 ProPlus:

Go to

Log in with your ( username and regular Park password.

Go to the Install Office in the upper right corner and click the little down arrow next to it.  (Note! This will only be visible if you are using a PC or Mac - Chromebooks, Linux, etc. will not see this.)

Click on Other Install Options from the menu.

Here you will find the option to install Office 365 ProPlus which includes Access.  Make sure that you choose the correct version and language you need, then hit the Install button.

What if I just want Access and don't need to download the entire Office 365 ProPlus Suite?
