Is Microsoft Visio available for Mac?

Microsoft Visio is only available for Windows, however, there are some alternatives for Mac users:

  • Create a virtual Windows machine on your Mac and run the Windows version of Visio in this. Options to do this:
    • Warwick staff and students can run Visio on their Mac for academic/research-related use by using university-licensed VMware software. This can be used to create a Windows virtual machine on the Mac, in which the Windows version of Visio can be run. Please see information here.
    • Non-academic/research users (e.g. infrastructure or administrative) can use the free VirtualBox tool instead of VMware.
  • LibreOffice Draw is a free, Open Source alternative to Microsoft Visio that works on Mac. Please see here for details and to download.
