Software licensing

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

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

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 CITS at 508.999.8900 or use our online IT Help Form.
