Arial Unicode MS font missing


I recently installed Office 365 (2016) and am now facing the problem, that it does not include "Arial Unicode MS" as a font anymore. On my old laptop Office 365 (2013) still did include this font. Because I currently have no access to this laptop, can anyone suggest where I can download this font for free or does Office already include an option to add further fonts automatically or something similar?

It isn't strange at all. When Microsoft included Arial Unicode MS with earlier versions of Office, Microsoft paid a licensing fee to The Monotype Corporation, which is the copyright holder for the font. Someone at Microsoft decided it was no longer worthwhile to continue paying that fee, so it was removed from the Office package. The price you see now is what charges for a single copy.
