The University IT Software Licensing office acts as a main point of contact for software that is available for purchase or use on campus. Many products are licensed and distributed directly through the software web store. If we don’t offer it, the Software Licensing office can help you find the best alternative source. If there is general and continuing interest in a software product not yet offered on campus, we will research the request to see if we can negotiate an agreement that will benefit the university.
