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. To learn about software licensing agreements administered by OIT, please visit the Software Catalog.
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 home use. Unless specified, licenses are generally not available for student use on personally-owned computers. Students can find academic versions of many popular software products at the University Supply Store. 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. Due to licensing restrictions, you must be using a computer that is connected to the University network to download software from the catalog. To download licensed software from home, connect to the University network using a VPN connection. If you are a University faculty, staff, or student who needs eligible software for a home computer and cannot connect to the UA network, please stop by the IT Service Desk at 125 Gordon Palmer for a free software CD.
Any software not listed in the Software Catalog must be purchased by the department or individual through normal procurement channels. The University Supply Store carries academic versions of many popular software titles. Also, 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.
