Software Licensing on Campus

Service Description

In cooperation with Business Services and University Legal Counsel, ITS negotiates and manages major software licensing agreements university-wide.  All software licensing must go through a rigid approval process, to acquire software legally and to ensure it is compliant with accessibility and security requirements.

ITS provides several software titles for university-owned systems, using a distribution portal; called Software Center for Windows and Jamf Pro for Mac (coming soon!).  Check those portals prior to requesting assistance. Some titles are for academic/lab use only, others may have different types of restrictions (administrative or research use), and some provide allowances for personal home use

Beyond the major list below, there are a variety of other specialized software packages in use across campus.   Applications like CROA, ImageNow, and Informer can be found under Administrative & Business Systems.

If you cannot find the information on this page, in the related articles at the bottom, have a question about software licensing or about purchasing software, use the Create Ticket button to the right.
