About IUware

IUware is a software distribution service for Indiana University students, faculty, and staff. IUware offers a wide variety of software packages at no charge, including site-licensed products from Adobe, Microsoft, Thomson Reuters, and others. Software packages include programs for reading email and web browsing, as well as antivirus and office applications. The university pays for the relevant licenses through agreements with vendors; this allows students, faculty, and staff to use the programs available through IUware, most free of charge. The IUware server is regularly updated, so patches and upgrades for IU-supported software are consistently available.

Eligible individuals with valid IU credentials and compatible web browsers can download, install, and, in some cases, execute applications from the IUware website. For eligibility information, see Get university-licensed software at IU. Some applications distributed via IUware are reserved for use by individuals in specific courses, departments, or roles.

Technically, you do not own the IUware applications installed on your computer. As long as you meet the eligibility requirements, you are entitled to use an installed IUware application, subject to the terms and conditions specified by IU and the software publisher. When you are no longer eligible, you are required to uninstall any IUware applications stored on your personal computer.
