Many software companies offer special licensing agreements to higher education institutions as incentives for them to purchase and use their software products. In many cases, ITS purchases campus-wide or volume licenses for software products that are popular at Syracuse University and then redistributes them to departments and individuals for use on their university-owned computers. Because ITS provides software to the SU community of users, we acquire licenses in volume purchase arrangements and are thus able to obtain large discounts on per copy academic pricing. As a service to the campus community, ITS frequently purchases more licenses than we actually need and resells the extra licenses to individuals and departments for their use, passing along to the users a substantial cost saving when compared to retail pricing.
The purpose of this web page is to provide information about the various contracts currently in place and to enable users to order licenses through a series of web-based forms. If you are looking for a specific product not mentioned here, or have other questions, then please e-mail the ITS Business Office at ITSOFFICE@syr.edu
