At IU, how can I get university-distributed software?
At Indiana University, if you are a current student, faculty member, retired faculty member, or staff member who uses a computer at work, you can obtain university-distributed software as follows:
- Download it free of charge from IUware (valid IU Network
- Purchase the software on CD or DVD at your campus
bookstore. Available software includes various Microsoft
products under the conditions of the IU/Microsoft Campus
Agreement and Adobe software under the conditions of the
IU/Adobe Education Enterprise License Agreement. You will
need to show one of the following:
- A valid university ID
- A photo ID and a schedule of classes proving current enrollment
If you are a student, to ensure you can adequately prove enrollment, contact the bookstore prior to purchasing. See At the IU campuses, what are the locations and hours of the bookstores?
- Some software is available at the walk-in Support Center in Bloomington; see At the Support Center walk-in location in the Wells Library at IUB, what products and services are available for purchase?
Note: Staff members who do not have access to a computer at work may not download or buy software distributed under the Campus Agreement. In addition, retired staff are not eligible for software under this agreement.
A student shall be defined as one who is enrolled in one or more for-credit classes, or is carrying credit-bearing hours. This may be established in one of three ways: 1) by identifying the student via a valid student identification card; 2) by verifying that the student is enrolled in one or more credit-bearing classes through review of the Registrar public access screens in the Registrar IUIS system; or 3) by validating that students in Continuing Studies are enrolled in one or more for-credit courses.
