Software Available to Faculty/Staff and Students on Campus Software Library
This doc shows what software is available to UW faculty, staff, and students on the campus software library.
- 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 doit.wisc.edu to confirm eligibility.
- Faculty and staff have access to Adobe Creative Cloud software through federated login. There are no pre-built Adobe installers on the CSL. IT staff who have requested access to the Adobe Enterprise Admin Console by emailing adobe at g-groups.wisc.edu can build custom installers there with a variety of options. Current student information for Adobe Creative Cloud can be found at the Adobe Student Subscription KB doc.
- Faculty, staff, and students have access to Microsoft Office through the Office 365 portal.
- Site-licensed Microsoft and other software intended for installation by IT staff is available to TP Primes and other IT staff on the CSL. IT staff can request access to that software by emailing microsoft at g-groups.wisc.edu.
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). 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 doit.wisc.edu.
