Microsoft Campus Agreement

Service Description

The University of Windsor has signed a campus agreement with Microsoft to offer a wide variety of their software on campus. The agreement provides Microsoft Office software for all University owned PCs, including faculty/staff PCs, research labs and student labs. Additionally, the license allows faculty and staff to install Office software on one home PC for work-related use. The Microsoft Campus Agreement also allows authorized technicians to upgrade existing Microsoft Windows installations on on-campus, University owned computers.  It does not cover upgrading non-University owned computers, nor does it allow a technician to install any version of Windows on a computer that does not already have a Windows license bought and paid for it.  For more information, go to
IT Services offers installation support for all software, but the degree of support for the software varies with individual packages. For instance, full support and training is available for Word, Excel and Powerpoint, on the latest platform, but limited support is available for Access. Outlook Express is supported as an alternative e-mail client to Lotus Notes for faculty and staff and for students who use it for IMAP or POP3 to access the Student WebMail system. Limited support is available for the XP and Macintosh platforms. A complete list of IT Services supported software is available on the IT Services Supported Software Web site.
Please visit the Computer Literacy Skills Web site  for more information or to register for a class.
