Campus Software License Agreement

Purchasing a new computer? The Campus Software License Agreement (“Agreement”) provides essential software, licenses and services to the university via a one-time fee, charged to the same budget that paid for the new computer. The Agreement is a cost-effective way for departments to acquire services such as email, Office 365 and Adobe Creative Cloud... everything you need to get started without the need to individually procure essential software packages.
