  • Emeritus faculty and retired staff are only able to access the software listed under "Utility" in the Campus Software Library and will not have access to Microsoft or Adobe titles. For antivirus for emeritus faculty and retired staff, check the free antivirus software link.
  • Employees of UW-Hospital and UW-Extension are not eligible for most or all of the software listed. If you believe you are eligible for a particular piece of software and it does not show up, please email licensing at to confirm eligibility.

Additional software may be available to staff who placed orders for departmental software through the Tech Store (that mostly refers to purchases of Microsoft Select licenses and some of the math and stats software)—please refer to Using the Software Order Form to Purchase Departmental Software for instructions. That software will be available to download after customer clicks the "Purchased Software" link that will appear for them on the CSL home page. If a customer contacts us because the person who purchased the software is not the same person who needs to download it, please email licensing at
