Microsoft Software @ UNCG

UNCG participates in two Microsoft volume licensing programs that make software available to faculty, staff, and students at reduced cost:

In addition, students at UNCG have access to free and discounted software through an Information Technology Services (ITS) subscription to Microsoft DreamSpark. DreamSpark is a Microsoft Program that supports technical education by providing access to Microsoft software for learning, teaching and research purposes.




Microsoft Enrollment for Education Solutions (EES)

The Microsoft Campus Agreement provides the following for installation on campus computers:

How can I get the software?

  1. Install from the Campus Network.
  2. Purchase “Work at Home” Rights and Media.
    Faculty and staff may purchase the home use versions of Microsoft Windows for $9.75 from the UNCG Online Software Store. ITS is partnering with Kivuto, Inc., to provide 24/7 online access to discounted software.

  3. Server software access for DTS staff.
    Microsoft Server and SharePoint Server are available to Information Technology Services (ITS)-certified Department Technology Support (DTS) staff only. For information on ITS certification training, please contact 6-TECH at 256-TECH (8324) or 6-TECH@uncg.edu.

    To request Microsoft Server or Sharepoint Server software, please fill out the Microsoft Server Site License Acceptance Form.

Microsoft Academic Select Plus Agreement

The Microsoft Campus Select Plus Program is a volume licensing program which allows UNCG offices to purchase a range of Microsoft software products for installation on university-owned computers at greatly reduced prices through the UNC system reseller.

Because "Select" software is licensed on a per machine basis, rather than on the number of faculty, staff, or students on campus, and is not available for concurrent use licensing, these applications are not available on the campus network.

How can I get the software?

The designated UNC system vendor for Microsoft Select purchases is Dell. For information on software availability, pricing, and quotes, please contact the UNC Dell sales representative at Brent_Lien@dell.com.
