Software Licensing

ITS Software Group negotiates and manages software licenses campuswide.  The group keeps an inventory of software, including Adobe, Microsoft and SPSS, at a significantly discounted price or free to departments and individuals for academic use.

Student Staff Faculty


Most software can be requested for installation by a desktop technician, or installed remotely by a Help Desk phone analyst. In some cases, software is available for download and self-installation. As part of our campus-wide licensing, some products have limited home use licenses (including Microsoft Office). For clarification on the best method of installation for a specific software, please contact the Help Desk.


Some software titles are campus agreements, but other specialized software is paid for by the department or individual
