About OIT Site-Licensed Software
OIT works with University academic and administrative departments to provide campus-wide and volume licensing agreements for commonly used software programs and applications.
Campus-wide and volume licensing agreements administered by OIT are listed in the Software Catalog. Most agreements are restricted to University-owned computers, but some do provide limited licensing to faculty and staff for personal use.
Please note that each software agreement contains its own terms and conditions. Generally, use of campus-wide software is limited to University business, academic, or research related purposes. Details can be found for each product in the Software Catalog.
Obtaining Software Not Included in the Catalog
Any software not listed in the Software Catalog must be purchased by the department or individual through normal procurement channels. Many departments enter into software licensing agreements separately because the need for the software is limited. Check with your academic or administrative department to determine if there is additional software available to you.
The University maintains standing contracts with three vendors for other software purchases. Departments should request quotes from these vendors when possible.
New Volume Licensing Agreements
Departments interested in new campus-wide or larger volume licensing agreements should contact email@example.com to express interest. OIT will work with campus units to evaluate and pursue these agreements.
Information on software with campus-wide or volume licenses administered by OIT are available in the software catalog. Each software page contains detailed information about that product’s availability and restrictions. Software may be sorted alphabetically or by category.
