Software @ UNCG
Information Technology Services (ITS) provides software licensing and acquisition information for the many software applications available to students, faculty, and staff at UNCG. By managing software licensing and acquisition, and negotiating license agreements, ITS enables campus departments and individuals to benefit from reduced costs and make their software dollars go farther.
- Software Sales Are Now Online!
Students, faculty and staff are now able to purchase software, previously sold through the ITS Client Services office in the Forney building, from the UNCG Online Software Store. ITS is partnering with Kivuto, Inc., to provide 24/7 online access to discounted software such as SAS, SPSS, Symantec Endpoint Protection, and the "work at home" versions of Microsoft Office for faculty and staff.
Use your UNCG user name and password to log into the UNCG Online Software Store. There you will see the software you are eligible to purchase based on whether you are a student, faculty, or staff member. For more information about software available for purchase, visit Software Purchases.

- Autodesk ARC (Academic Resource Center)
Autodesk recently announced a new education licensing program providing faculty and students with access to their most popular software applications free of charge.
Beginning in 2015, when the current contract expires, administrative departments will no longer be eligible to use the campus concurrent use licenses for Autodesk software. Autodesk will be announcing a special discount for administrative departments who will need to begin buying licenses for their computers.
More information on campus access to the new licensing program will be provided as Autodesk provides the details.
