Visual Studio Enterprise

Visual Studio Enterprise is available to STEM departments enrolled in the Microsoft Azure Dev Tools for Teaching program. These departments can offer Visual Studio Enterprise in their labs as well as to their students and faculty. As part of IU's volume license agreement with Microsoft, IUware offers STEM departments a promotional code for a free subscription to the Microsoft Azure Dev Tools for Teaching program. To access this code for enrollment:

  1. Go to Azure Dev Tools for Teaching and sign in with your IU email address (username@iu.edu).
  2. Accept the ULA agreement to proceed.
  3. The new page should load with a list of software; if it hangs and doesn't load, select Software.
  4. Select Visual Studio Enterprise Edition 2022.
  5. On the right, select View Key to display and copy the code.
  6. Select Download to download the software if needed.

For more, see Azure Dev Tools for Teaching, Azure Dev Tools for Teaching FAQ, and Microsoft Azure Dev Tools for Teaching Agreement.

Individual faculty or staff members who would like to use Visual Studio Enterprise outside of the Azure Dev Tools for Teaching program should purchase a license.
