Software licensing

CITS manages software licenses for UMass Dartmouth faculty, staff, students, and technology-enabled classrooms. UMass Dartmouth's software licensing is divided into three separate types:

  • freely available to all faculty, staff, and students
  • site licensed software, which is restricted to installation for any faculty/staff member on any University owned/tagged computer
  • limited licensed software, which means that the University has purchased a finite number of copies of the software for installation on University owned/tagged computers and is limited to one copy per faculty/staff member

For an alphabetical listing of currently available software titles and licensing information, please see the table below.

Please note that any software listed as "freely available" may be downloaded from the CITS software downloads page, or from the software developer's page.

For specific questions regarding software installation, please contact the IT Service Center: 508.999.8790 (x8790) or via email
