Licenses for use on personally owned computers and devices

  • University-owned computers only: Eligible faculty & staff may download the Windows and Office software for installation under the EES license on University-owned computers from the UDeploy licensed software server. This software is not to be downloaded for personal use.
  • Microsoft Work at Home Licenses (Windows): The University's Microsoft agreement includes limited Work at Home rights. Permanent faculty and staff may purchase and download a selection of Microsoft Operating Systems (e.g. Windows 10, Windows 8, or Windows 7) for use on personally owned computers for University-related work only. The fee is about $10.00 for a Windows license. For more information, and a link to download the software, go to the UDeploy Microsoft Work at Home Software License page.

  • MS Office for personal use and "work at home": University students, faculty, and staff can now use Microsoft Office 365 for Education at no charge on personally owned computers. Office 365 for Education allows students and employees to download and use the most current versions of Office as long as they are current UD employees or students enrolled in UD academic courses.
